Charles, LONDON Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I chose it for size and weight so no surprise I like it. It suits my needs. Battery life is good so for many travel purposes I don't need to carry a charger. Compared with other machines of its type its good value for money. Quick to boot up. Slick design
Bad points:
Trying to find out what kind of VGA adaptor is needed to link to an external monitor. The manual is useless and on-line help not much better. The Samsung adaptor is expensive. Windows 8 takes some getting used to but that's not Samsung's fault. It would be easier to use the touch screen if it folded back completely or was detachable - but you pay a lot for these features in other machines eg the Lenovo
