Boring in a good way,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 5 530U4B 14 inch Ultrabook (Intel Core i5 2467M 1.6GHz, 4Gb RAM, 500GB HDD, 16Gb SSD, DVD-SM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
This laptop is boring in a the best way possible. By that i mean everything just works. The first computer i have ever had where i did not wind up having to reconfigure everything. No excitement to find the right driver, no reinstalling the OS, no random hardware failure, it just does exactly what it says on the tin.
A few points for the prospective buyer: the screen is great you can use it in broad sunlight comfortably. The battery lasts 4-5 hours when working, 3 hours with multimedia. 1.8 kg is surprisingly heavy, if i bought it again i would take the 13" screen version which is considerably lighter. The option to upgrade to SSD at a later stage easily was also key to choosing samsung. Although many reviews on the internet rate this machine as pretty average, the price when considering cash back is sooo much lower than the competition, taking the samsung was ultimately a no-brainer!
NB if you are an ubuntu user careful: the laptop is not compatible with wubi (the windows installer version).
Amazon took a while to deliver it, wasn't happy about that. Ordered on Friday with next business day delivery and got it Tuesday.

Am considering this laptop but what is the cashback offer that 2 reviewers mention?

It was an offer that ended in June where Samsung gave back 20% cashback http://www.samsung.com/uk/vatback/
