There are no measurements posted that we can advertise for battery life.

Many programs run in the background, and depending on the programs you install, this may greatly affect the battery life when doing any number of either word processing tasks or movie tasks.

So many programs, variables, and even movie players have different requirements and use resources differently. There are options to prolong the battery - like power saving options - that we could recommend, but none of these can allow us to proactively guarantee or suggest the longevity of a battery life.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.

Question

When will this be back in stock ?

My local store is Emeryville, CA, they had an open box item listed as in stock, but when I try to add to cart & checkout it gets removed (I was in the Emeryville store also, they said they are all out of all stock on this) ; same with the San Francisco Harrison store.

Beautiful machine .. would be nice to pick one up ;-)

You can remove the back of the computer and add or expand the memory. The solid state hard drive is expensive. You may look into and external hard drive if you are concerned.

You'll be able to get an external drive for this item, but there will not be room for internal storage expansion.

There's has been moves with Bios updates and patches but I'm still having way more problems than average with the WIFI access on this laptop. On the other hand, I think more patches are coming. Who knows.

For some televisions, the HDMI input needs to be set to accept a compute signal.

You may want to check with the Best Buy Geek Squad Agents for further information with troubleshooting your laptop.

I found them at abeststore.com. I ordered two and they arrived in about two weeks. They were perfect except for the bottom row, which was too small. When I let abeststore know, they checked and acknowledged a factory problem and promised to send me corrected ones. That was almost two weeks ago; I'm optimistic that I will see them soon!

Question

Power plug issues

Hi,

Samsung: First and foremost please do not give generic cut and paste answers its rather annoying. The plug pin that connects the cord to the laptop is extremely thin and does not easily snap into place. I am worried that it breaks easily and does not snap well into place. Is this a defect on the laptop or am I missing something?

While it's possible that your laptop may require repairs, it'd be difficult to determine without physically examining the unit. If you haven't already done so, you may wish to speak with a technician at your local Best Buy store for confirmation whether or not repairs are necessary.

Question

How does the solid state drive work with an accounting software such as Quickbooks?

I need a business laptop for primarily accounting purposes. How does the solid state drive work for that type of application? I don't need a lot of memory space, I will not be using this computer for photos or videos.

Any program that you load on the solid state drive will be flashed to the solid state drive. Meaning that it can be brought up with drastically reduced load times. If you save the files that you make using Quickbooks to the solid state drive there as well, there will be reduced load times for that also.

You'd have to get a Series 9 to get it with no touchscreen. Series 9 is thinner, costs more, and actually has lower resolution screen, and you lose the touchscreen. I'd have to say it's a no brainer to get this over a series 9, unless 3.4 pounds versus 2.5 pounds is going to break your back...

There are several models of Samsung laptops that don't have a touch-screen, although the touch feature is pretty neat with Windows 8.

If you haven't tried it out, give it a try at the retail store. If you already know that you don't want a touch screen, there are several other models of Samsung laptops available that don't have a touch screen if you absolutely don't want that feature.

Thanks for your interest in Samsung laptops.
