I got myself this laptop to be my everyday light portable coffee drinking companion. I like to go outside to get my morning coffee in the nearby coffee shop and find the reading of morning news on my cellphone or tablet very tiring and hard for my eyes, so I decided to get a netbook that will allow me to do just that.
I went for the Samsung just cause of the name, I admit it's not always the smartest thing to do, but this time it wasn't a bad decision. This laptop will allow you to go outside, take it with you and it's very very light and compact, so you can just carry it under your arm without the need of a bag or briefcase. The bad thing about this kind of compactness is that in order to achieve it you need to sacrifice something and what the Samsung sacrificed is power. This laptop will serve you very good if you use it to read the news, check your mail, check your Facebook etc. Even an occasional movie in HD will spin on it without much hassle. That means you'll be able to watch YouTube movies. But don't overdo it. If you overload it too much it will almost grind to a halt (I mentioned the sacrificing, well this is it). I think it's single core processor is to blame for it. Even Google chrome will put it to almost too much stress. But it's not made for heavy processing tasks so I can't blame it much.
The thing that I can't overlook is it's display glare. If you're outside, sitting drinking your coffee while reading the news you want to be able to see what is on the screen. The screen is too much reflective and glaring for that. Sometimes it will almost go to unreadable. It is what I mind the most.
All in all it's a good indoor news reading occasional movie watching netbook.
