Overall: Very good laptop, been 3weeks..
-touchpad -multitouch unresponsive quite often
-no pause/break button (for old games and programming software)
-battery issues,barely lasts 2hours, but i guess its my battery,asking flipkart to replace it.
-no caps lock,num lock indicator, but a blip comes up on the screen when toggled and is irritating when accidentally pressed while playing games
-HDD divided only into 1 partition so it comes with only local disk C
-noisy touchpad buttons
-FAST..mine boots in about 15 seconds(after tweaking msconfig),resumes after hibernation in 8-9s
-RAM clocks at 1600MHz , again making it very fast
-SATA-II ,for max speed if you upgrade to a SSD
-4 USB ports, 2 on each side make it very convenient(left 3.0,right 2.0)
-comes with really convenient software provided by samsung
-very nice screen,quite bright but viewing angle isnt the best
-Graphics are quite nice so far with 2GB(dedicated),Total Graphics(ded+System)=~6GB
-Audio is really good(speakers are above average) mic in can sample at 192kHz
-good built,feels like quality plastic
-Well placed LED indicators
-heating isnt too bad for a laptop running a 3gi7
-System boots with wireless peripherals turned on
-Bluetooth adapter allows you to use laptop as handsfree/headset for your phone(not a great feature but its cool none the less)
-'turbo mode' increases performance and disables/reduces laptop fan to minimise noise,though it heats up when this feature is on
random info: audio in/out(3.5mm) is on the right side of the notebook.
Overall, a very very good buy,brilliant for graphic design, Audio processing, Video making,gaming and anything requiring fast computation.
For basic use,dont waste your money,an i5 will be more than enough.
