Very good user reviews on Amazon
Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), advanced photo and video editing, 3D graphics, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption
Large amount of memory sufficient for memory intensive applications
Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
Battery life is unknown.
Medium GPU allows playing most demanding games, but only at low detail settings and resolution, and less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at high settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for latest, demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2, etc) at high or medium detail settings and resolution
15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
Weight of 4.8 lbs is lighter than average for this screen size
Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
No integrated webcam; will need separate webcam purchase for video chat (or camera information unavailable)
Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations

Samsung has long been a favorite of mine, along with Dell, but the ATIV Book 2 has put Samsung in the lead for good. It boots up in seconds and is ready to do a good days work or play.

Great price and great computer. Fast, neat. Very nice configuration. Nice RAM memory. Makes thing easier to do. Price was ok too.... I love this unit! I changed from a Dell which I am sick of! This is so much easier to use and Samsung has some of their own features that make it worth every penny. On the down side, it has a feature ... So far, this PC has been a great boon in our family. My wife uses it for her video-conferencing and web-publishing work.Here's what we see:1. Speed of PC. It's got good speed, even running Windows 8.1... Like the computer. It's fast enough and light enough for me. After Samsung came out with the a start button, I began to like it a little better. I never use the Win 8 desktop where all those big, s... I purchased this laptop as a work computer - I had a $ limit to spend. I own a Samsung Series 7 Laptop with Win 7 that I purchased a few years ago (before they started naming them ATIV), it's a litt...
