    Samsung doesn't have the fan base Apple has to pull off ridiculous laptops like that. Although much better than the MacBook Air it probably won't sell well.

    It's a shame really, Apple don't deserve to do better with inferior products

    It had me convinced until I hit this bit
    The ..... $1,599 price tag (£1,030 excluding VAT),
    Maybe not. I need a new laptop, but I'm thinking more like £400 or less, because I don't need anything that fancy.

    1,366-by-768 - pants.
    Proprietary Ethernet port - pants.

    CPU with integrated GPU is good though.

    Overall - way too much money for something that small...

    I was reaching for the credit card... until the plus £1k price tag. GET REAL Samsung, and Apple... you are asking consumers to pay over £1000 pounds for a netbook. 128GB storage that most people will fill with iTunes alone!! Rant over. Good looking ? Yes. Portable? Yes. Affordable? Definately not.

    Given the expense, it is definitely not for the masses.

    This is much better package than the Macbook Air but unfortunately, this won't sell well as Samsung doesn't have the fan base as Apple and will need people who have that much money to not care about brand image.

    I think this is very overpriced.

    Not too sure about the curves taken from the SF series?

    Will be surprised if this sells well in it's niche market.
