I currently own or have access to a Samsung Series 3, 6 and 9. Each laptop serves a different purpose and this one is built from the ground up to be the budget laptop of the series. What you get is a decent laptop, excellent battery life for the size and a good name to be paired with your system. The performance is sluggish compared to it's bigger brothers, but honestly what can you except when you compare there price points. This is a lovely machine for a standard home user. This laptop specializes in style and battery life and everything else falls a little flat, but overall it is fairly good bang for your buck. I think this laptop is a good fit for most user and it provides a pretty good experience. My last comment would be to avoid customer support if you can. They will get the job done, but in my case I had to wait over 2 weeks for an expedite RMA and it returned in worse conditioned the when I sent it in. It was only until I threatened legal action that I was provided proper repairs at no cost.
