    128Gb SSD should be phased out by now given the market price for SSD has plummeted. I would have thought 256Gb as standard wouldn't increase cost significantly? Full HD screen seem to indicate these will be a mid-tier device, hopefully they'll come in at a reasonable price given their lackluster specs. What do you reckon they're worth? £600-£700?

    The Dell XPS range still looks the better option to me.

    I guess for work they are adequate. On my personal PC I have a folder with over three thousand .pdf and .doc files which is only 1.39GB.

    But I do agree that in today's market, 256GB should be the standard minimum, especially for home-PCs, which will have photos, videos, applications, etc.

    I am never going to buy Samsung laptops again.. Their Laptops are built of poor material & their laptop testing is bad.. I own a Samsung NP550P5C-S05IN it has dead spot on the bottom right corner.. Also poor after sales service in India.. They are not going to help you in anyway, they refuse to add SSD if you want it in place of Bluray ROM.. They use thermal papers Stickers to write Serial Number which wash out when it gets heats up(Mine washed out within 2 months after its purchase).. Moreover, Serial Number written on Laptop Box and Serial Number written on back of Laptop cover is different. Usually Last one digit less on the Box.
    Be Aware of Samsung's Dirty tricks !

    Don't get me wrong but for guys like you(with that much usage), you can also use mechanical drives(HDD) and still can do your work easily. But for guys like me who needs to open 100+ tabs on each browser IE, Chrome, Firefox not to mention Software running/Installed on it like PCB design, Compilers, Steam, Visual studio PDF, Excel, word & having 1 TB of HDD space running out of space with tons of research data, Programs, Video lectures etc .. We do feel 120 GB is so low..

    Those SSD sizes are hilarious for the leading SSD maker.

    These won't make it to the UK - shame as my 4 year old 900X3c is still going strong but would love a higher res screen as an excuse to upgrade... guessing they will be priced from £750-850 for the pentium and up (900x3c was £1200 on launch).
