Good Laptop, Expected Incompitence

 

This is a fine laptop for office and casual use. Thanks to its i7 CPU you can have many windows and programs running at the same time and not worry about performance. While graphically intense programs will not run well, it can still play bluray...

Windows 7 instead of Windows 8 ; Fairly powerful CPU easily capable of multitasking ordinary and mundane programs ; Although it has Intel HD Graphics it can still play bluray movies without problems ; Does not heat up after extended use, although the...

I bought this laptop because it has Windows 7 and I did not want to hassle with Windows 8, however there were still a couple unexpected issues ; This laptop could not join the homegroup on my network. I had to create a new homegroup and move all my...

Be ready for a scavenger hunt

 

I would have rated this computer in at 5 eggs had it come equipped for all my needs straight out of the box. Once the driver was updated, the laptop worked like a dream. Despite the initial headache, I would still recommend the computer--I just wish...

I was obviously seduced by the design. I typically don't look for anything high powered since I don't do any gaming. I am a teacher and I needed the notebook strictly to do word processing, excel, e-mail and gchat/skype. This computer offers all of...

This does not come equipped with microsoft office (have a copy ready). Also, Pentium makes great processors, but poor wireless cards. I found out the hard way when I tried to do a skype conference and the wireless failed miserably. Save yourself some...

Alittle larger then I though but fine

Consumer review by:

Never received the lap top.

 

I don't think I will ever buy anything online over $50 that doesn't require at least a signature at pick up.

None, UPS apparently delivered the package to the wrong house (I was sitting by my front door watching the tracking page as the package was scanned "delivered" with the note: Front door.). This was supposed to be a gift for my mother

This has been a massive headache. UPS sent me back to newegg to start an inquiry, which I did. Newegg asked me to wait 7-10 days for a reply. It's now been 2 weeks and still nothing - not even a reply as to whether the inquiry even began or an update...

wow, pink & big keys

 

i purchased an extra power cord to have in my bag while one at home.

I consider myself blonde non techy kinds person. this so faris faster than my desktop. has large easy to see keys, a plus for me since i cant type and a numeric keypad. makes entering passwords easier. I really like it so far

battery life not nearly what is listed

Consumer review by:

Nice!

 

I purchased this notebook to replace my wifes Macbook notebook that had gone out. This is perfect and she is happy! Sound/speaker quality is great, plenty of storage room, I installed 8GB of RAM to make it even faster but it is pretty good stock....

None so far

Beautiful design.

 

My sister is looking for an affordable laptop and I recommended her this. For her everyday use checking her email surf the web and MS-office projects here and there is more than enough for her. I really like the numeric key pad on the right and it...

Beautiful design. Full numeric keypad on the right

More Ram and CPU speed would be nice

SAMSUNG NP300V5A-A09US

 

Being unfamiliar with Samsung laptops, I was bit apprehensive about this one, especially since there were no reviews. However, after reading more about the Samsung brand, I decided to try this one; and I'm very happy I did! I use this laptop for...

Pink ; Fast ; Large screen

Pretty in Pink

 

Under $500 + girlfriend loves it = success

Girlfriend loves the color and design ; Adjustable fan speed ; Fast boot/wake ; Low energy consumption ; Very nice keystroke feel from keyboard ; Nice touch pad - very responsive ; Very minimal bloatware - only had to uninstall 4 programs ; Really cool...

Super-narrow viewing angle: I could not find a single angle that didnt distort at least some portion of the screen - even head on and directly centered ; The "0" key of the number pad is cut in half to make room for the "right arrow" key ; Audio from...
