Very Very Pleased

 

I have had my netbook for about a week now and am extremely pleased with it. I bought it so that I could carry it around to classes with me and take notes/work on assignments in between classes and it has allowed me to get a ridiculous amount of work...

Very small, very lightweight, fast, and dependable

Great little netbook (refurbished)

 

Great little unit. Perfect for surfing the web, chatting, facebook, email, etc. (all the basic mindless tasks). My daughter is really enjoying it. Perfect size, solid feel, and we save $$ buying refurbished (looks/works like brand new)....

None at this time

not bad for normal internet use

 

Quick load up, very light, internet moves

Some sites like Facebook take longer to load up I have an 8gb SD card for turbo boost. Also the Windows version that comes with it is extremely basic can't even change back round ( wife made me add that lol)

Just As I Expected

 

I recommend looking at a netbook in a store before buying one so that you can get a feel for just how small it is. When you have one, utilize every application's full-screen mode whenever possible. Full-screen mode is especially valuable with word...

I'm a no-frills kind of girl, and this netbook fits my personality to a T. It's super-portable, easy to type on, and didn't break the bank. The small keyboard did take a bit of getting used to because of my giant man hands, but after about 30 minutes I...

I was prepared for how small the keyboard is, but not for how small the track pad is. It's really, really tiny. I'll have to buy a mouse for it. Also, Office Starter isn't the best thing ever. It might be good for a quick edit or two, but not for a...

Pretty Good Purchase - with Work

 

Once you get the laptop, install the upgraded 2gb stick of 204 pin DDR3 (10600) ram, delete the bloat-ware (ie. Games and "Samsung Easy" programs), replace Norton with Microsoft Security Essentials, disable the nifty touchpad features, and replace IE...

Arrived in nice neat packaging. The screen is clear and the whole system is very lightweight. Once you clean up the programs it has a relatively quick Boot (see other comments). After only owning for a couple days I can say it does have good Battery...

Mouse pad and buttons are to close to the edge of the case and they are hard to find in dim light situations. It also has all kinds of touchpad features that will annoy the heck out of you. Internet explorer comes standard and it slows down the...

Cool

 

I purchased this for my 12 year old. It does not have a ram upgrade yet. It has the same specs (and similar bloat) as a Asus I got my other teenager yet somehow seems a little snappier. He uses it for social networking, chat, watching movies. He loves it.

Shipped in perfect condition. It worked right out of the box. Battery was fully charged. Small, lightweight, battery charges quickly. Does very simple tasks quite capably and will even play older/low spec games

Battery life is average. Movies look pretty blah but that's to be expected. Hard drive has two partitions which is really irritating. System partition is quite small. Wiping 7 Starter off of it is a good idea

Great Netbook

 

Ram is DDR3 NOT DDR2 as stated everywhere! Thankfully Newegg was very understanding when I purchased what the manufacture said without checking for myself. It is a great little computer I like this one the most out of the five that I have owned.

Excellent battery life 6-7 hours with full brightness and heavy wifi usage, great keyboard, nice finish on lid (doesn't collect fingerprints), good speakers for a netbook, actually has some useful software preloaded not just bloatware, good price for...

Samsung support is HORRIBLE. You cannot register this computer. They are aware of the issue and are doing nothing about it. Only 1 gig of ram out of box

Consumer review by:

Great price, excellent quality

 

All in all, a great product. I'm considering buying another for my daughter as a birthday present.

Long battery life, sturdy construction, responsive keyboard, back lit LED display. Runs much faster than I had expected. I love the light weight, and ultra portability. Built in wireless N makes for excellent wi fi connection speeds, and 3 usb slots...

None that I've really noticed. The 1GB of RAM isn't excessive, so it won't power through multiple applications simultaneously but that's to be expected
