Got this from a retail shop...the black one. It looks sexy I must say that. It doesn't look like some cheap netbook or an entry level notebook. The look is classy.
Performance is much better than I expected. In Energy Saving mode, the battery easily lasts 6-8 hours depending on usage. If you are only going to surf the Internet or work in MS Office in medium brightness, it can exceed 9 hours. Samsung laptops truly excel in battery life.
You can play HD videos thanks to the Radeon graphics......
This is just perfect for me. Browsing, music and playing videos - it's just right for that. Windows 7 might seem a tad slower. But very good. I installed ubuntu 12 as a parallel operating system. Works fast and easy and I use that more often. It's easy to install. There's a windows installer on the ubuntu page.
PROS Over a conventional 10.2 inch notebook - the 11.6 inch makes a significant difference. You can view most of an A4 Page or a webpage comfortably without having to scroll down.
I bought this notebook about a month ago. It is not a netbook. It performs well for all basic and medium applications. Try to upgrade the RAM to 4Gb. It costs an additional Rs.650 only.
It multitasks very well because of the dual core processor. No heating issue. Silent. Very light. Build quality is very good. Has got an HDMI port. Nice Island style keyboard. Good Sound Quality. Will get around six hours of backup in power saver mode. Reasonable price.
Nice product, I purchased from flipkart. Prompt delivery, got product in one piece. My son loved this product. Just uninstall the unnecessary software and optimized it for best performance, increase the page file size and it work like charm.
