Disadvantages: Built-in speakers not strong, mousepad could be improved
Having been torn between Windows and Mac's for a number of years, I've decided that they both have there flaws and drawbacks. I purchased this computer while I was using a mac and decided that I ultimately wanted something that was excellent value for money, which is why I chose a windows as opposed to a Mac. I have never had a Samsung before, but the reviews on Amazon swayed me to this.
In the current market, for the spec this is probably the most you can get from your money. The computer is very lightweight with a large liquid display screen and I haven't had any problems with glare off sunlight and things like that. The casing does feel a little cheap and plastic, it also attracts marks very easily - but I guess that means it'll get cleaned more.
The computer itself, is very responsive and quiet compared to my Mac, especially when it comes to the fan. As of yet, I haven't had any problems with it over heating and I've been using it for a good few months. As I am studying Graphic design I needed a computer that could hack programs like Photosop - and this certainly can.
The keyboard if you are a mac convert is very similar so I didn't have any problems with changing. I would say the touchpad is a bit strange as it sometimes allows you to scroll using two fingers - and sometimes it doesn't. I feel the product would be much more improved if they kept it the same for everything.
The only major issue I seem to have had, is with wireless connectivity. The computer didn't seem to be able to stay connected for more than half and our at a time and wouldn't reconnect for hours later. The problem seems to have calmed down since I used someone else's broadband.
Overall pros: I would say this is excellent value for money - the problems are easily fixed or down to taste, it is lightweight has excellent spec, it's easy to use, great for watching films, it also has a long charger cable and it doesn't break the bank!
Overall cons: Having trouble with internet, the protective case is kind of cheap looking and the speakers are great for loud music.
Summary: The product has excellent feature, performs well and is inexpensive.
