Windows 8 and Samsung don't mesh

Date:August 29, 2013
i dont know if it's just my laptop, but the one i got doesn't work great at all.
Windows 8 keeps on crashing if left on for more than a couple hours.
the wireless card or something is TERRIBLE. it consistently stops working.
i'm 100% sure it's not my router that's the problem because all other devices connected wireless-ly work without any problems.
so i dont know if it's just windows 8 or the samsung hardware that don't jive well with the OS but this laptop is not that great of a buy. or just beware of this when purchasing.
the small sleek look of the laptop is what made me get it, but i'm sure there are many other alternatives for small ultrabooks at the same price range.

Lots of good stuff but...

Date:September 1, 2013
Product Highlights: Bright Screen, Battery Life, Memory, Value for Money, Fast/ High Speed
Performs well and a solid build. However, there are lots of minor irritations: no backlit keyboard, a tad heavy, no caps lock indicator, and its sleek design means that resting your arms on the computer while typing is rather uncomfortable.

Excellent Laptop for the price!!

Date:September 21, 2013
Product Highlights: Design, Value for Money
The look of this laptop is great - Very sleek design.
I expected it to be a bit lighter but it's still very light compared to many other laptops.
I love the size - you almost don't even notice it's only 13"
The battery life is great - lasts me about 7 hours of usage or maybe 12 hours of usage and standby which is great because I'm a student and can use it in all of my classes.
The touchscreen option is very convenient and love having it!
Starts up very quickly.
The only things I wish I could change about it is the fact that the battery is built in and the storage space is a little bit on the small size.
However, for the price, I couldn't have asked for a better laptop!
