Overall a great laptop, great for gaming, and everyday use. Have had almost now problems with it,and I am very impressed with the performance. One thing to note, if you are transferring your music collection over from windows Vista or XP, to the laptops windows 7 you may have a problem with ID-tag's.
This is a great laptop. I looked around and couldn't find a better one in this price range and weight category. After owning this laptop for about a month I am still very happy with it and would suggest it to anyone who wants a light laptop that can still provide the power to play some recent games.
It's alirght laptop but useless for my needs, cause require windows xp for work related stuff, and this has only drivers for apparently win 7 64 bit only or 32 bit, for XP 64 bit it can be used as paper weight instead.
Overall, a great laptop. The keyboard is nice to type on, despite the funny location of some of the buttons. The screen is nice and bright with decent colours. The screen is a bit reflective but not bad. I found I had to manually adjust the colours from stock though. I would prefer a 16:10 screen vs. a 16:9 which is featured in this model. There are also a few nice features in this such as eSata and usb charging while turned off. The machine runs quite quiet and doesn't prodcue to much heat. Although I haven't played any games on it yet. The i5 is nice and snappy though.
Nice compact sleek unit. Plays games with punch! It has good cooling, throttling the cpu up and down is a breeze like my last Asus F3sv. Icore i5 is tonnes of speed for what I'm using it for. DVD's look great using Powerdvd 9.Screen is high quality. Perfect size for my trip to Asia next month. I'll be loading up a ton of games for the flights. Nice job Samsung.
