    I recieved this computer today and let me tell you exceeds my expectations! Just to expand on the specs:
    from the box:
    Intel Core i7 3615qm – duh
    300nit screen
    Nvida GT640m Gddr5 1Gb_hybrid
    6GB memory
    750GB HD
    Intel 6235 Wirless and 4.0 Bluetooth

    I immediately replaced with a SSD and this thing is blazing! I also own the np700z3a-s06us which is the slower 14inch model but worth every penny! Also to note it appears they fixed something with the track pad because it is a billion times better than the one on my np700z3a! Glad I went with these Series 7 Laptops from Samsung, Thin and Light… Beautiful!

    Update: I did have a slight issue with the screen having a defect, dark spot along the edge. I noticed it after about an hour, but Amazons awesome customer service had me a replacement at my door today! This one looks better, I know the display is a deal breaker for some but I encourage you to check this system out before you buy if you can, I think you will see it will be far past 90% of people’s expectations. Although, being very computer savy and deep into the tech world I do have to agree that this screen coming from the top High Def TV manufacture is very disappointing. This for me is not the deal breaker; I think it’s still hard to find a package that provides a thin sexy platform along with still having a optical drive with excellent battery life. Along with the third gen intel i7 this machine is incredible in the performance category.
    I still give samsung 5 stars for this laptop but if I could they would get 41/2 for the display!

    Update 06/13/2012: OK reducing my rating to a 4 star review because of some reliability issues. Maybe its because this is the first run of the third core edition? First time it was the screen not its the DVD drive. When I received the second unit everything appeared to running AWESOME had zero issues until today. I decided to load a program from a cd media and found that the drive was dead. I thought maybe just my cd nope i tried everything and nothing. So Im waiting on my second replacement, I still have faith in Samsung and this particular computer because I own the 14in version and it is ROCK SOLID! So I am reducing my rating to 4 stars because of my personal experience and the display as i mentioned earlier. I think third times the charm! Fingers Crossed!!!

    As an added kudos for Amazon, I have never had this many problems with an item before that i purchased online, but Amazon has got to be the most efficiently and helpful company I have ever delt with even in brick and mortar stores. THANK YOU AMAZON FOR THE EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!

    The laptop out of the box looks amazing, very thin, about 0.1 thinner than the Macbook Pro (non-retina) version. The Intel i7 3615QM is extremely fast, almost as fast as my desktop i7 2600K (without overclocking). 6GB RAM is good for the average user, but graphics/design and game intensive users, it is a bit low. There is only 1 RAM slot, a 2GB DDR3 1600Mhz stuck in there, the other 4GB are on the mother board. So, if you want to upgrade, you need to buy a single PC3-12800 1600Mhz 4GB or 8GB stick to perform the best. It is a bit of a hassle because a single 8GB 1600Mhz for laptops are hard to come by at a cheap price. The screen is pretty nice with sharp colors, 1600×900 resolution is actually a plus for this laptop compared to 1920×1080 resolution. Why? This laptop comes with a dedicated Nvidia 640M graphics card with 1GB of GDDR5 VRAM, it is a mid-range chip a bit slower than the 650M. At 1600×900, the GDDR5 640M can outperform a 650M at 1920×1080. Max Payne 3 and Metro 2033 ran smoother on this Samsung compared to the retina Macbook Pro with 650M set to 1920×1080.

    The construction is a bit flimsy, thin aluminum screen assembly and plastic bottom. If you are considering upgrading this with an SSD, you have to be VERY careful. This laptop is equipped with a 8GB Express Cache mounted to the motherboard for speeding up load times. It does not do a good job, it is a Sandisk 8GB iSSD that reads about 110MB/s and writes 70MB/s with latency of around 10ms random read. Many SSDs today read and write well over 400MB/s with latency under 0.5ms, so you are stuck with a 8GB flash drive on your mother board pretty much… It is very tricky to work around the express cache when installing Windows 7 to the upgraded SSD without some sort of problem. If you look on Sandisk’s website, the lifespan of this 8GB iSSD is well under 3 years with heavy usage everyday. You’d just wish Samsung charged $200 more and sold you a laptop with a 200+GB SSD installed.

    With all that aside, the keyboard is very responsive and a plus with the full keyboard. The keyboard back-lit is nice. The mouse pad however is disappointing. It’s got all the features like an Apple multi-touch pad, but so much less responsive and inaccurate at control. The ambient light sensor is a joke, either too dark or flash me with the brightest setting… The sensor software sometimes takes about 45 seconds to 1 minute to load with the stock 7200RPM 750GB Hard Drive…. imagine that… The Express Cache does not help at all.

    The laptop runs dead silent. Samsung provides an option to only charge your battery only to 80% full to extend battery lifespan over the years, I feel like this is kind of ironic. The system comes loaded with useless software, deleting some of those actually speeds up the start-up time.

    At the given price, it is still a good bargain system. Good for PC professionals.

    when i started to research the chronos 15 i longed for the ivy bridge update. The specs are exactly what is in the description including the express cache which really comes in handy when starting the computer up. My one and only complaint is the scree, clearly its not going to be as good as an LED display or other higher end displays, but the right and left edges get a bit of a faded effect of you aren’t basically perpendicular to the screen and finding the sweet spot to keep the screen horizontally took a little bit. other than that the display is perfectly fine and most heavy multimedia is done on desktops or TV’s. This shouldn’t discourage you from buying the laptop. After playing with the color settings the screen looks great, and the fact that you can work in direct sun is a plus. Also the track pad after playing with the settings is awesome too, almost up to par with apples track pad. performance wise it never slows down. the only upgrades that i can see myself doing in a few years would be a ssd and a ram upgrade. this seems like a solid investment and i am very happy with my purchase, but if the screen is important to you i would proceeded with caution but if used for school work and internet related uses, perfection in a stylish design.
