Good: amazing build quality and looks
Comment: I played with this model and the old model side by side in a shop and I was very impressed. This model to me is a huge step up and better than the macbook air or any ultrabooks on the market. The build quality is ridiculous while being amazingly light and thin. The older model was impressive but looks chunky next to this. Also it now feels more like an all metal build whereas the previous model had a mixture of duralumin and plastic that let it down. If I had that much extra money I would buy this in a heartbeat.
Good: weight & display
Bad: don't know yet
Comment: Hope to try it soon
a) if you don't want one don't buy one.
b) Don't post a review when you've never used it, go argue it out on a forum somewhere.
c) Apart from graphics/web shops most of the business world still runs windows so it's actually important to a lot of people.
Personally I need to run Windows so this looks pretty good to me, apart from the price.
I want something powerful enough to use as an everyday work computer and portable enough to be able to take to Costa Coffee with me. So this looks pretty ideal, especially the 15" one.
Good: looks just like a powerbook
Bad: its not an Apple powerbook
Comment: They say imitation is the sincerest form of a compliment so its clear that Samsung are impressed with the look and feel of the 'mac powerbook range but why would you pay for a copy and still end up with 'windows' ? Unless you really are determined to accept 'nearly as good as' and save a few £/$'s.
