Engadget Review

This 14-inch Ultrabook doesn't justify its heft with long battery life or exceptional performance.

The Canadian one comes with 1TB HDD, 1GB dedicated switchable graphics (AMD Radeon HD7550M) and a DVD burner with 2 USB 3.0 ports and 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI, for some reason VGA (oh, Samsung, you so silly...), all under 4lbs! For JUST under a 1000$, it's a pretty sweet deal that packs performance with portability. The only down side is that the processor is 2nd gen i5 with 1.6GHz. If it was only a tad bit faster, it'd be hands-down one of the best deals 2012 lappys have to offer. It's still a pretty amazing, in my opinion. It's light, sleek, and gorgeous and has everything I need it to do. I'll install some games and see how it performs... ;)http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/samsung-samsung-14-2nd-gen-intel-core-i5-2467m-laptop-np530u4b-silver-np530u4b/10194045.aspx?path=f235ab557f1abd0d058d4d9aa6a1e07fen02
