Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good screen, keyboard is responsive and the laptop is a good size for the specification (inc DVD)
Bad points:
I had real issues with the WiFi adaptor. WiFi dropped out a few times then packed up completely. I had to manually reinstall a new driver firmware via an Ethernet cable. This issue has been quite common looking at web forums.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Nice looking and starts up quickly.
Bad points:
Problems with wireless connectivity, dropping out and having to go through the troubleshooting to fix the problem. After purchase - realised through online searches that its a common fault with this model. Updated latest driver from Intel, which didn't solve the issue; finally contacted Samsung helpdesk who have suggested that it a something to do with the power saving options - which I changed. Will give it a few more days grace, but if it keeps dropping the wireless connection (when all around me everything else at home is fine), then this is heading back - for the price I paid I expect the wireless connection to be more stable

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good Ultrabook. Worked perfectly out of the box! Booting up is really fast and performance is excellent, just like I expected after reading about it. I went for this 14'' version because it has a DVD drive which is always good to have! Design is very stylish, modern and tidy, the whole unit has a nice feel to it. It's quiet and it seems that it doesn't really get hot at all. I gave a batter life score of 9 because I know that other Ultrabooks out there can have longer battery life but I am happy with this Samsung, it's definitely enough for me.
Bad points:
So far so good, no bad points. You should get one!
