Pros: I have this machine for about 1 month now and I am very impressed with it. Was expecting something out of the ordinary and it really is. The touchscreen is excellent and the precision has been spot on every time. The display has good brightness and good viewing angles. I like the touch pad but I am still getting use with the keyboard. I haven't had such a slim laptop before and it takes time to adapt to the shallow keys. Speakers are a great surprise. Volume and sound quality is well over what I expected. I never had to worry about where I left my charger. This machine can handle a entire office work day without a problem. Excellent build quality with a state of the art design. Cons: I would have preferred the Intel Graphics 5000 instead of the 4500. Really don't know why Samsung choose the cheaper one on such a premium device. Scaling is a bit annoying with some programs and games. Sometimes I really struggle to read some menus (even in Adobe Reader which you would expect it not to have such problems, it's not a back-yard program after all). Games also appear quite awkward because of not so standard ratio of the display. Your fingerprints will be all over it. The finishing is smudge attractive. Prepare to wipe it more often than you would expect.

This laptop is average at best. I've had issues with it continuously since I purchased in a bit over a month ago. Lets start with the major problems with this laptop a) The mousepad is terrible beyond words. It seems to not respond to movements by the left hand, a big problem for someone left handed like me. Secondly it is difficult and hard to click, you often have to click 2-3 times before it actually responds. At the same time the movement of the mouse is too light, meaning you always have a problem for example highlighting a section of text. The hardness of the clicks makes your fingers hurt after an hour of use. Very uncomfortable. I thought perhaps it was just an issue of getting used to it but after 6 weeks it seems this is not an adjustment issue. Friends who have borrowed the computer tell me how annoying it is so i know it is not just me. I dont know how I will stand having to actually work on this laptop and write longer reports etc. b) the Wifi has a very weak ability to connect. Continuous problem is that it will not connect to Wifi and have a problem every other day. Other devices will connect fine, just this laptop having issues. I have had to reinstall windows to make it connect to a wifi. c) Programs dont run as they should. Chrome takes up to 30 min to start up, when it tries to install updates it will stall and freeze. I dont see the point of having a super fast computer if it takes for ever for programs to start up. d) today the laptop randomly started playing loud piano music. In task manager no programs could be seen to be running. Utterly strange. Had to turn off the computer to make it stop. e) sometimes the laptop wont turn on despite being charged. Then I just have to leave it for a while and come back later and hope it will react. f) runs on windows 8....need I say more? g) over to minor issues: the material the laptop is made of makes it super smooth. So smooth you cant have it on your lap as it will just slide right off you. Want to use it while working on an airplane? Forget it. This is so stupid. h) this might be a windows 8 issue but the scaling of everything is terrible. EVERYTHING is displayed extremely tiny, so tiny it is a challenge to change the scaling. It's just annoying beyond belief. Positive: the customer service live chat is very nice and useful. I would know because i have to contact them every other day to help me get this thing to work. I just really really regret buying this, you can probably get something just as average for half the price.

    Comments about Samsung Mineral Ash Black Laptop Computer:

    Nothing really bad to say about this laptop as of yet. Have had it about 7 weeks now. amazing battery life compared to my past laptops. Bright/clear screen. Only 2 cons: (1) Touchscreen and mouse sometimes stop working properly when using Google Chrome and its extensions but perfect with on other MS products (Internet explorer, Office, etc). (2) I'd prefer the speakers adjacent to the keyboard or on the sides of the machine versus underneath it. Sometimes it gets muffled when using it on my lap.

        Slim design, wonderful ultrabook. A must have for college life. It works way better and way user-friendly than Macbook and other apple laptops. However, the Wifi drops sometimes, that is the only con I encountered so far.

          Comments about Samsung Mineral Ash Black Laptop Computer:

          I love my samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus - It does everything great, EXCEPT... I purchased this pc as a high end machine with cutting edge technology. I was so excited about my new pc, last one was a 2007 model. As i began loading on various software i need to run my business, it became clear that the display was a real issue because various fonts are so small they are unreadable rendering my software practically useless. I worked with various vendors for literally hours on the phone, each vendor asking me to try various screen resolution options. As luck would have it, what one vendor would fix, the next vendor i called asked me to undo those settings to make their software work. None of the fixes were proper, just a band aid. Please keep in mind this is all BRAND NEW 2014 SOFTWARE I am working with, not old stuff. I have been struggling with since July 2014 and still have no fixes. I am told to change settings depending on what software i am using. Hello, they need to be used together!! Note that the pc does work well with all browsers i have tried, however if i logon to sites, much of the working info at the site is victim to the same small font issue. So, at this point, i am stuck with a top of the line, super expensive pc, all the best brand new software loaded up, and i cant see half of the fonts because they are too small. Useless right?

                    I ordered this ultra book for school and it just came yesterday, I have to say that I am very pleased with this product. From the beautiful design to the stunning display this product is excellent. While this is a good product performance wise and for web browsing and the 8 gigs of ram makes multitasking excellent, it is not that good for gaming as I tried with some games.

                        This is by far the bet laptop I have ever owned. It is better than any MacBook available. Its thinner than a MacBook air and Macbook viruses are more common than a Samsung Windows 8 virus. It starts up in about 5 seconds and it wakes up from sleep faster than I can open the screen. I have never had a single lag on it. And the display is simply amazing. I've never seen a laptop with this good of a display. The speakers are surprisingly great as well. It's definitely pricey, but if you want a blazing fast PC that will last 5+ years, then this is the laptop to buy.

                            This computer is the best. Boot-up, shut-down and internet connection times are fantastic. Brilliant screen is great for photo editing...as is the processing power for high resolution raw images. As with any new user to MS Windows 8.1, it took some getting used to...I recommend buying one of the Dummy books to help ease the transition. I still find it hard to believe some competitors install MS8.0...it's inexcusable forcing their client base to upgrade to 8.1. Kudos to Samsung for a great design, computer and including the latest software releases. No doubt this is an expensive computer, but it delivers fair value and should keep up with new software introductions for the next 5 years. Meanwhile some software developers need to upgrade their products to match the high resolution screen of this product.

                              This notebook is the best looking notebook I've ever seen, The performance is fantastic with the 256GB SSD & i7 under the hood. A full days battery is awesome. It is super thin. It is a little heavy but is very sturdy. The QHD monitor throws some programs for a loop. There are software things that need to be fixed windows developers!
