Overall: I bought this laptop to meet a couple of specific criteria: easy on the pocket and sturdy for everyday moderate use. I am happy to report that this machine meets all my requirements with flying colors. First, it's not too heavy and I can lift it with one hand and carry it around no problem. Second, it's screen is big enough for personal movie-watching experience (being a Film Studies student, I watch a lot of media and I need clarity and size to make every watch worth my time). Third, I love the volume on this machine. It isn't booming but it's quite good for the size of the laptop. And finally, the battery and fan. They're very good, very quiet and very long lasting. On any given day, I run my laptop on battery for four to five hours and it never runs out! It keeps prolonging battery life and I have personally had five hours of unplugged usage, including working online, watching media, playing music and working offline. That's quite nifty for such a price! And the fan is effective so that it takes a good few hours before it really starts to heat up, and even then, if you shift positions and air it a bit, it cools off. I think that's promising for a machine that is running on battery for such long periods. All in all, moving from MSI Slimbook, I was afraid I was not going to find another laptop with equal performance value (I loved my MSI, may he rest in peace) but Samsung delivered. Two thumbs up.
