A slightly underwhelming start to the year for Samsung with this offering

Bright screen ; 802.11n Wi-Fi ; Ample storage

Basic performance ; Flawed keyboard ; Touchpad easy to brush

Excellent Value

 

I will put an SSD in at the end of the month and put the 320Gb in an external enclosure, probably one of the Rosewill cheapies. I don't do any games, but I can state that this would NOT be a good choice for a gamer. This is a utilitarian piece of gear,...

I was looking for an efficient value laptop to run my Digital Audio Workshop...and this hit the mark for a very low price. Solidly built, with excellent key feel. Came with 4Gb RAM. Came with a nice acetate protective cover for the fingerprint magnet...

A good bit slower than my Intel Q9650 desktop. HDD is fine, but would've preferred a 7200rpm

Excellent but indestructible to a point.

 

I owned this laptop a few years back. And it was excellent. It took a bit of damaged due to game rage but fell off the bed and the screen broke. I still own this laptop but havent replaced the screen. I will when I find one but it was a fast computer...
