Let's hope it lasts


This is such a hunk of crap! I tried installing Ubuntu on it and now I can't find drivers for it. The worst part is that Samsung says they won't support the system unless it is running Windows 7. Samsung even included a system restore cd with Windows...

Love it!


Purchased to replace full-size laptop for travel. Unit is well designed for everyday use! Concerned about keys imprinting on screen so I am using a cleaning cloth to cushion keys when unit closed.
