Review Samsung ATIV Book 6 Touch 680Z5E-X01US Notebook


Full-HD mainstream. The Samsung Ativ Book 6 combines a powerful quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and a dedicated AMD graphics card with a generous 15.6-inch Full-HD touch screen. How well the sleek-looking design performs and how it...

Sleek and appealing design; Sturdy and well-built chassis; Display is bright with great contrast, excellent colors, and viewing angles; Good overall performance; Ports are well-placed and easy to reach; Backlit keyboard

High-gloss and reflective display; Keyboard layout feels cramped; Slow hard drive performance given the price point; Rather short battery life

Lenovo IdeaPad S500 Touch, Sony Vaio SV-T1511M1E/S Ultrabook, Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499, Ativ Book 8 Touch.

Not at all as advertised


Since I can't post any criticism of Newegg's service, I have no other thoughts to share at this time.

Wouldn't know

If I could give this 0 eggs I would. Or maybe 5 rotten eggs. The laptop is filthy dirty, it did not come with an operating system, the backlit keyboard does not work. This is NOT A Grade Samsung Recertified by ANY stretch of the imagination

Works like a champ


Should have bought it sooner

Awesome laptop, especially for the price. Cheaper than the NP470R5E-K02UB (also an awesome laptop) I bought new that this is replacing. It arrived in less then 24 hours, came out the box in flawless condition, and has worked flawlessly ever since ; It...

Both two and both are duds


Would not recommend. Especially with the pro service if something is wrong. This is the first time I've ever had a problem with refurbished good. May need to go after a credit card chargeback.

Seems like a fast machine

One laptop didn't have the product key. Contacted newegg who then contacted manufacturer. It's been two weeks and I haven't heard a word ; The other laptop encounters an error everytime it boots up

Bought this in a local tiger direct store Worked pretty good for awhile but then after 5 months i opened the laptop up and the casing on the screen broke. Now it's completely limp and has to be held up. poor quality, not worth the money paid.

Great but not perfect!


I tried to install a fresh copy of windows 8 without the recovery or restoration image that Samsung installs onto the hard drive. However the embedded BIOS key is not something that can be used with any of the Microsoft images you can legally obtain....

Outstanding hardware for the price ; You get a touch screen with great colors and contrast ; Core i7 in a laptop rocks ; And most important to me: dedicated video card (FTW) ; The touchpad is very nice. I usually don't like using them but this one is...

Now to the dark side of this laptop ; BLOATWARE! This laptop was crawling when it arrived at my doorstep. I couldn't even run flash based websites because of the junk Samsung decided to install on this laptop ; TPM - this has an integrated TPM that...

Great Laptop


When using any Graphics intensive software make sure that the switchable graphics knows to use the discrete 8770m instead of Intel HD 4000. This tripped me up when I first ran 3D Mark and received a ludicrously low score compared the average with...

Nice Responsive touchscreen ; Nice GPU and CPU combo ; Amazing Speakers for a laptop ; Screen is sharp with little light bleeding ; Great standard mic and webcam for skype and other software that require such things ; Full Backlit Keyboard is nice to...

Not very friendly when it comes to disassembly, Only RAM is easily accessible ; Aluminum body and the surface in between the keys are fingerprint magnets ; Screen is a fingerprint magnet ( Though this is really only noticeable when the LCD backlight...
