Paul, London Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very thin and light, great if you move about a lot, this was the primary reason I bought the laptop
Great battery life
Really small power adapter
USB3 ports
Very bright screen
Boots up super fast
8GB RAM means you can run loads of apps or a virtual machine
SD card reader, I keep a 64GB SD card in at all times to give me some extra space for my files.
Big trackpad that works really well
I use the laptop for working as a software developer and it can run VM's and performs extremely well,
The 15" screen means that you're not squinting at tiny text
1600x900 resolution, not as good as 1080p but still way better than 1366x768 which you see on a lot of other laptops.
Bad points:
Screen viewing angles are VERY bad, the screen is by far the worst feature of the laptop which is a real shame
128GB hard drive doesn't give a ton of space but I stuck a SD card in to give me more. Would recommend a reinstall of Windows and disable hibernating to maximize free disk space.
Can't use standard ethernet cable without an adapter, doesn't bother me though as wifi is everywhere these days
Gets fingerprint marks very easily, not so noticeable on black though
Speakers are rubbish and it can't play games but you'd be foolish to buy it thinking it could, it's definitely a more business/productivity type laptop for people on the move who don't want to carry something heavy about.

Mark, Chesterfield Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent design and aesthetics. Seems very well made; very strong and with minimal flex. Extremely thin, small and light for a 15inch laptop. Good ergonomics. Keyboard and mouse pad very good, although the latter takes a bit of getting used to you. Bright and clear display. Minimal noise and heat. Cant really comment on the battery life yet, but looks OK. Incredibly small and lightweight power adaptor makes transport a lot easier.
Bad points:
Performance good from the Ivy Bridge i5, but let down a little by the Intel integrated graphics trying hard to drive the ultra high res. display. Limited usable disk space (system takes 30Gbytes of the 128)- need to make choices over what you load. Display angles a bit limited, but in the right position is excellent. Need adaptors for micro HDMI/Display ports & combo earphone/microphone which Samsung don't provide in the box. When paying well over a grand that's not very nice!

Stephen, Falmouth Business user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Battery life is good, and performance is decent for the size with a good screen. The build quality is also good and the construction is reassuringly strong. Price was good as it was pretty discounted.
Bad points:
The network adapter is annoying in terms of it's size and the fact that you have to carry the adapter cable if you want to use it. No HDMI cable included and at least an adapter would have been useful
