# of SAMSUNG products I own:6-10
Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight, powerful graphics for the money, speed of usb2 transfers is solid (x2 usb2 slots), speed of usb3 transfers is mind-boggling (x2 usb3), boots incredibly fast even without ssd, amazing speakers for a laptop
Cons: windows 8, overly sensitive mousepad (but can be turned off)
I'm an IT guy and a gamer that does a lot of travelling, so I needed a light-weight machine that was powerful enough to run all of the latest games reasonably well. I had a Razer Edge Pro on order, but it was backordered 3 months. I saw this machine's predecessor in the store (similar body/weight), and I loved the design (sleek and light, but not overly flashy like my last several gaming laptops). When I read the initial reviews of the 8870M, I decided to take the plunge... and it was worth every penny. It benchmarks very well, and has performed more than admirably with everything that I've thrown at it (video conversion, capture and stream, Crysis 3, etc.).
It's thin, light, powerful, and sleek. It fits right in at a lan party or in a business meeting. It is the perfect combination, at least for me.

Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, powerful, great multimedia use, perfect for gaming, durable materials, dependable, high quality, great picture and sound!, awesome keyboard, girl friend loves it, awesome product
Cons: no cons
My girlfriend bought me this laptop as a gift a few weeks back. Since then she won't stop stealing it to use it for herself. lol
I own a few Samsung products, and really have a hard time sharing this laptop! I own a Series 3 for business and website work. This Series 7 is my main personal laptop, and for what I enjoy the most, it really brings out the best in what I do.
We both really love, I mean love the speed and power behind this laptop's abilities. She does a lot of photo editing, uses a popular picture editor, and the laptop just rips right through her work. Like a knife through butter!
I'm an avid gamer, and while I'm on the go this is my weapon of choice. I love the gaming side as well as watching videos and stuff, but this is my baby! Hers too I guess, because if I'm not on it, she is!! lol
Just wanted to tell you guys! This laptop is by far the most powerful laptop I have ever owned, and I have owned a few! Just brilliant! Thank you!
Now if only my gf would buy herself one too! lol!!!!

the laptop is a a great computer nice slim and light weight for it's screen class. It's fast on set up and the support center on the computer makes it simple to keep it up to-date. One con to say is that the left and right buttons on the mouse pad are in the pad its self making it a small challenge to get use to. overall great product.

Pros: Bright display
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations
Not really sure how much is Windows 8 and the laptop, but i find this very difficult to learn and operate. The keys are way too sensitive and the screens/cursor are constently jumping around.
The design of the laptop has a sharp edge where my wrists rest. After a few minutes this becomes very uncomfortable.
The CD drive has no dedicated eject button. Received no documentation with the laptop and it took some online research to fnd fn+del is the answer.
Network connections is difficult to accomplish. The process is very difficult and not intuitive.
