The ATIV Book 2 NP270E5J-K01US 15.6" Notebook Computer from Samsung features a portable design with a mineral ash black finish. Measuring 1.25" thin and weighing just under 5 pounds, the ATIV Book 2 combines portability with performance.

Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

      This is a replacement for a ten year old laptop...I wish I had bought one sooner. I am very happy with this Samsung Laptop. It is fast and less weight than my old laptop.
      I have a steep learning curve jumping from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 so I cannot criticize the laptop for that. As with anything new it will take a little time to adjust.
      I have found the finger pad to be a little tricky to operate at times - this is why it gets four stars instead of five - but plugging in a mouse eliminates that issue.

      The computer has great specifications for everyday work and Internet access. If you intend to play games or do heavy work the i5 processor is limited.

                  I hate Windows 8 - let's get that out of the way first. Needed to buy this for a family member who was going off to college.

                  For people who need a computer on a budget for school usage, this fits the bill quite well. It's fine for word processing, email, and internet usage. Keyboard and trackpad work fine. Ships with a lot of bloatware, so you'll have to uninstall a lot of that "garbage" before you're really up and running.
