After playing with this a month now, wife and I really appreciate the larger keys and non-glare screen. (great at breakfast table near a window) Got the touch pad dialed in to suit (still get the occasional unexpected movement). Anyway a couple of problems here. You can't use this netbook right away because when you first turn it on it still has to finish installing the OS. Then it wants to partition the 250gb drive. (I moved the slider to set mine to 40gb for the OS as drive C:/ and the rest as drive D:/) Then a bunch of updates and assorted unknown nonsense. Finally after about an hour you can use it. But it'll seem terribly slow until you do some further updating of various drivers, etc. Mine kept dropping connection to my wireless N router. Was finally able to keep it connected long enough to update internal wireless adapter receiver, good solid connection after that. A bit bland, Win7 Starter does not allow you to change your wallpaper nor is there any aero transparent glass, no media center or other such goodies. Quickly did the "anytime" on-line upgrade thing to Win7 home premium. Big difference. Nice and pretty and more enjoyable now, matching the slick chrome trim of the unit. Also dumped mcafee in favor of microsoft security essentials. This little netbook with the N280 processor does work well with Win 7 whereas my Acer Aspire One (N270 & 2gb) was a bit sluggish even with a clean install. Highly recommend this Samsung netbook. Just keep in mind: the manual is in software only, under Start>All Programs>Samsung>user guide. There doesn't appear to be any blue tooth functionality with this unit that I can find. Also for best performance with streaming videos (such as instant play netflix movies) press Fn&F8 at the same time to change power settings. Also be sure to install a 2gb memory upgrade, periodicaly go to Samsung's web site and get any desired updates including bios. Keep it defragged and virus free and have fun!"
