Must have: No downtime
Get it with: FastStart
Because you definitely don't have time to wait for your notebook to catch up with you, Samsung's innovative FastStart feature eliminates the agony of slow bootups and shutdowns.

Plus, you'll be right where you left off, because FastStart instantly saves your data and system configurations to your hard drive and PC memory. When you're done working, you don't even have to shut down. FastStart does it for you, going into a special hybrid sleep mode as soon as you close the lid—and saving all of your information instantly, so you can manage back-to-back classes, safeguard your hard work, and even keep a roaming roommate's eyes off your screen with just a click of the lid. Then when inspiration strikes, you'll be back up and running in seconds.
