Samsung Series 9 - Thoughts?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody,

My old man is getting a new laptop, his work is covering $500 of it for him so he wants to get a pretty nice one. His only real criteria is that its lightweight, good battery as he's flying all the time and is easy enough for his outlook to cross over (why he's doubting the Macbook Air).

He was thinking this one, wondering if anybody has any experience with it...

He was also maybe thinking of this Toshiba as it has the i7 instead of i5, but my argument was that it wasn't really necessary for his needs.

May I ask why he's looking at $1000+ laptops? I understand that you're basically getting $500 off, but unless hes doing some insane number crunching he doesnt need an i7, 128gb ssd, etc. Also what are his requirements for style? As you're paying a huge premium for the brushed metal on the samsung laptop.

Depending on what you reply with, I think he would be happy with something thats MUCH cheaper, like in the $600-$800 range, and still keep pretty good performance.
