Pros
Great performance, nice sleek design, innovative touch pad, low heat and noise.
Cons
Moderate battery life, screen is can be a bit blurry at times.
Summary
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.

Pros
Powerful, inexpensive and good looking.
Cons
Battery life is low (about 2.5 hours of use). Smudge/fingerprint prone
Summary
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.

Pros
Not a bad design, fast on Win 7 64 bit, everything works. But only on Win 7 :)
Cons
No drivers for XP 64 bit really struggling with win xp
Summary
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.

Few other features it lacks too. example no led indication if numberlock is on or off, no wireless hard switch to turn it off or on... no audio controls available other than within th os. Toshiba to be frank is more appealing now i think of it, might have to return mine back to ncix cause it does not full fill my needs/requirements.

Pros
-i5
-500GB
-GT330M 1GB
-4GB DDR3
-14"
-HM55 Chipset
-Runs cool and quiet.
Cons
-Comes with Windows 7 32bit.
Summary
Re-install Windows to 64-bit and this laptop runs FAST.
It can easily get 7300 3DMARK06 scores on the GT 330M videocard.

The laptop can run GTA4 on HIGH no problems, along with L4D2. Also can run Crysis Warhead in 1366*768 mainsteam mode at 30FPS+.

This laptop runs very smoothly, make sure you update  the drivers. The ones provided on the Samsung website is not fully up-to-date so besure to check around for the latest ones.

Pictures cannot do justice for this beautiful laptop. It is red wine but fades to black. Very classy and elegant... I've owned many netbooks + Dell laptops and I have to say this is one of the BEST by far. It is very light and it gets the job done.

For $1000.00 WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT? Bang for the buck, you cannot get a better laptop with an i5 processor. The i5 beats EVERY laptop processor in the market currently.

Pros
-Speedy(i5 and 330m)
-500GB HD larger than average
-not too heavy
-esata
-sleek look
-mouse buttons click easily
Cons
-Windows 7 32BIT
-No dedicated buttons for sound
-shows some finger prints
-left shift key is too small (making room for extra language keys)
-Enter button is too far right
-Battery life a little low.
Summary
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.

As for the bad, coming loaded with the 32bit version on win7 kind of sucks. I'm lucky that I have a free version of windows 7 64bit that was available to me. Also the battery life could be a bit longer. I would almost prefer a larger battery just to get a bit longer life.

A very good laptop with a sleek look at a great value. This thing kicks butt compared to the similar HP laptop that blew up on me.

Pros
wanted a smaller notebook but couldn't sacrifice the gamer in me! Plays MW2 nicely.
Cons
comes loaded with 32bit win7? WTF. Wasted 1 gig of ram doing this?? Please help me understand this logic.
Summary
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.
