Good: Battery life This baby has a 5 hour battery life(at the very least) which is not to be sneezed at!, The OLED screen is gorgeous too!
Bad: Nothing ( I have run 3D Studio MAX 2011 64-bit, Adobe CS5, MS Word, Outlook and 30+ Google Chrome tabs all simultaneously with zero-lag or performance issues)
Comment: Absolutely nothing wrong with this beast. It's Dual core 64-bit processor is more than a match for anything that you'd choose to throw at it.
As a work horse it's even faster than a lot of desktop PC's I've used! (Music)ProTools 8, 3D (No problems running any of Autodesk's offerings inc 64-bit version), Windows Server 2008 (no problems), Office, Adobe CS5 with GPU performance enhancing options on (no problems)
This really is a great desktop replacement, it's so tiny, (Smaller than my Acer Ferrari One 200 < It has XGP(HDMI) out by the way ;D ) so it can fit in an overarm bag no problem.
Samsung also give you a lovely velvet-style cover to stop it getting scratched in transit.
The HDMI out is huge bonus and keeping the VGA out too was a smart move by Samsung!
The 5+ hour battery life is MORE than enough if you happen to be out and about and need to use your netbook! (It's also very economic on balanced mode so it will go to sleep and conserve your battery very well if you forget to put the lid down when you're mobile).
Built-in Bluetooth and a microphone too so webcam stuff is a doddle!
A definate companion to Samsung's lovely HD TVs and the soon to be released new Galaxy Tab 10.1. IMO.
Good: Size, screen, price, build quality
Bad: Battery cud be better
Comment: Had one if these for a year just sold it to get another. Used a couple of others but for the price, specs etc this cant be beaten. Solid all round performer, fast responsive under normal loading. Its light and got a lot of puch for such a little machine. Looked at other smaller factor 12"ish machines but nothing comes close to this for the same money. Found one for Â£290, the closest competion was the Acer One Ferrari but thats Â£349 with no HDMI or Bluetooth. Will be glad when my new ones gets here. Highly recommended... Great screen too...
Good: Screen, battery life, weight, performance
Comment: I got this as a replacement to a Lenovo work laptop and absolutely no regrets. Boots up / shuts down in seconds (thanks to Windows 7), battery lasts half a day and it's incredibly light making the commute much easier. Full screen video plays brilliantly on the 16:9 screen. Highly recommended.
