Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from:

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Does not charge or keep charge. Graphics are very different on this laptop, so color or design projects will look different. Crashes and loses important data.

Amazing Battery Life

Pros: AMAZING BATTERY LIFE, breathable chiclet keyboard which is back-lit, sleek design, lightweight, lots of I/O, ExpressCache truly made a difference on Win7, epic performance on the i7-3615QM and GT640M, huge multi-touch trackpad, numpad (:D) and a nice matte display Cons: The biggest problem I have with the laptop is that there are no LEDs for activity when you close the lid, so you can't be sure whether the laptop went to sleep or still running, I have peek through the spaces between the lid and submerged keyboard to try and find the blue LEDs to confirm.

The display has very nice colors after a little bit of calibration but the viewing angle is terribly small. Overall, laptop is not very sturdy. I can actually compress the DVD drive by pushing against the keyboard on the left side and it would bend in. The display itself flexes at the terminal points. The bevel of the display is very thin and can easily permanently be deformed by apply subtle force. The backlit keyboard is amazing, but I wish it was brighter with more levels of brightness for choice. The trackpad is great but I have the driver feature which makes all the clicks on the lower left area to be taken as a left click, I wish it was like a MacBook Pros trackpad where only double-tapping would initiate a left click. This feature is present on Linux since there is no actual driver. The ExpressCache SSD was amazing when I had Win7, now I can't really tell if WIn8 is booting fast because that's the way it was supposed to be or whether the iSSD is speeding it up. Tried testing by switching the feature on and off, did not really make a difference. The processor and GPU are amazing, but I would have loved to see 2GB of buffer on the GPU instead of 1. Also would have loved to see 1080p panel on the 15 inch models. Speakers aren't the best, although subwoofer does give off some nice bass. The built-in camera is mediocre, but that's the case with most laptops nowadays. The design is not perfect, I see flaws every now and then but they are minor. The cover for the RAM slots is a very thin plastic piece and can easily be broken (something to keep in mind when swapping DIMM). Other thoughts: This is the closest to a perfect alternate to a 15-inch MacBook Pro at about less than half the price. The RAM is actually upgradeable to 12GB since only one of the DIMMs are accessible (the other is soldered), which is a 4GB DIMM by default, so adding an 8GB DIMM would give you 12 which actually works. The DVD drive can actually be removed and replaced with a HDD caddy for adding a 2nd HDD/ a new SSD. Who needs optical drives these days? There is no option for RAID0 in the BIOS, so that is something to keep in mind. Overall, its a great laptop, but not one which I will look back at every day and be happy for purchasing it. The only reason I bought this was because of the truly amazing battery life (I was referred to that by one of my friends). I get around 8hrs when reading PDFs or viewing text. 5-6hrs with wifi and 30% brightness @normal browsing. 4-5hrs with video streaming. Around 3hrs for watching 1080p videos. Gaming time on battery is short, which is common to all laptops, but I have never measured it (too busy playing :))

Very good laptop

I really like this laptop due to the many great features. Fast start up and great storage. Battery life is phenomenal, all day without charging. Theimages are crisp and bright though they do dim some when viewed at an angle.

The wireless card stays connectd no matter where I roam through the house. My only issue is with the touchpad. Sometimes the touchpad stops working for 15-20 seconds and then will start again. Not sure what this is.
