Review Samsung ATIV Book 2 - 270E5E Notebook

 

Energy saver. A work device runs the whole day - so it would be n

Good battery runtimes; Matte and bright display; Quiet operation; Frugal; Good keyboard

Not suited for gaming; Flexible plastic case; No USB 3.0; Bad maintainability

Great notebook for a great price!

 

I bought this for my 83 year old Dad as a replacement for an HP dtv6000 Pavilion that's seven years old and runs Win Vista. So slow! Also got him a Logitech wireless mouse. Have to keep reminding him he needs to learn Win8.1 and MS Office 365. He says...

The size to weight ratio is excellent. It has a full ten-key which is a must have for doing spreadsheets. Battery life at right about six hours. Screen is fantastic, LED, LCD, backlit. Processor and RAM make this a very fast machine when you just want...

A little slow to get all the Win8 stuff to update, then the pain of upgrading to Win8.1-Who thought that one up? Already have Workgroup set up for home network, now need Homegroup? There go my XP and Vista machines. I'll get around that blockage by...

So far so good!

 

Bought this laptop to replace my old Sony Vaio...so far I have no complaints. Set up was very easy, although the Windows 8 format took some getting used to (I had Vista..yikes). I like that there's an app store connected so you can download some pretty...
