4.0 out of 5 stars very pleased, 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite 13.3-inch Laptop - Black (Quad Core 1.4GHz, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
light enough to carry about to wifi spots etc with reasonable screen size..
very quiet.
adequately fast for my simple needs - have not tried games.
very fast start up / shutdown .

re windows 8 - -

the initial problem is microsoft try to coerce you into creating an account - it allowed me to set up a local account - just try any password - may need to fiddle about a bit .
the next problem is if you are presented with the unfamiliar tiles screen - find the desktop tile and clik - you should then get the familiar desktop .

i dont use touch screen , and ignore the ludicrously misnamed "charms" menu , , which is found by moving the cursur off screen left . moving the cursor offscreen top may show the familiar bar from which you may close a window .

after that win8 is not much different to win7 / xp or even vista , and certainly not as horrendous as some say ..

i uninstalled all the apps and programs i dont need.

the solid state ssd memory is 128gb may seem small but its plenty if you keep the bulk of your data on portable drives - which are now small and usb powered - and get into a routine where data is backed up .

instructions are minimal .

how anyone can find this review unhelpful escapes me .

or is it a way of expressing dislike of the product or its manufacturer?

a competitors employee perhaps ??

please explain reasons via this comments system - which helps everyone.
