Samsung 400B2B-A01

 

The machine is easy to use and has all the connections I need for normal operation

Samsung software is not helpful and just clutters the machine Samsung help desk is useless. When asked to solve a problem to do with security all they did was defrag the drive. Why you would want to do this on a new machine I don't know. Intel software...

Samsung 400B2B-A01

 

Windows Professional Size Weight Value for Money compared to 'retail' laptops found in the big sheds i.e. PC World, Currys etc Brand Quality - feel and finish is excellent and not garish like 'retail' laptops

Screen - poor viewing angles, but overlooked as everything else is positive.
