Is anyone else having issues with the system lagging a lot after waking up from sleep or hibernate? I saw it reported by at least one person in the October deal thread, and I'm definitely running into it as well. Any tips?

Also as far as cases go, I got the rooCase listed earlier, and I've been really happy with it. The outer pocket is just large enough for the AC adapter if packed well, but it seems like a solid case with a little more protection than your standard neoprene sleeve.

Had the same problem and thought it was because i enabled WIDI. Restored back to original config and it came back with the same issue. The way I was able to fix this was to download CCleaner from download.com or the Priform website. Run the default cleaner and then I would also do the registry. After that it would be fine. I would also notice the Firefox cache was huge but not sure if it was that. I always use this tool on all of my PCs once per month or so.

Good luck.

Yes, 1 x 8gb will work. There is ONLY 1 slot, and it already comes w/ 1 x 4gb, so we don't have a choice but to remove it and put in 1 x 8gb...

Anyways, I picked up this one when it was on sale @ $55 for 1 x 8gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820144555

So now my system is almost complete - upgraded hdd w/ Intel 160gb X25-M G2 SSD, and memory w/ 1 x 8gb. Now just need a cheap 6600mah battery Big Grin
okay so i got the wireless card updated....128 M4 SSD installed....new battery....last thing I planned on installing was the 8gb ram...how much of a difference does it make with the SSD installed? It's pretty damned fast as is now...worth it?

Can't answer the question but WOW, why stop now lol.

Memory is cheap go for it. The first time you have photoshop, up, building a powerpoint, decoding a movie and running a large display you'll appreciate it.

I was waiting for the black 6600mah battery to come back in stock, and it finally has. Here are 3 different sellers on eBay who are selling it for $31 shipped:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Battery-S...3a7024cbd1
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Battery-S...3f1364a1f9
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Battery-S...35b96b7e84

I'm still on the fence about getting one, I've been getting 3+ hours on the stock battery which has been enough for me. Day-to-day, I've been fine with the stock battery but I know one long plane ride and I'll wish I got it.

I tried to by one in beijing last year but none of the tech markets could get batteries at that time.

These are not the same part number
The original 3 series battery is AA PBOTC4A,
None of these is the exact part. Will they fit, they dont look quite right
Also what is the advantage of the 8850 over the 6600 battery?
thanks!

I installed the touchpad driver/software (ELAN v.3.3.0) via the Samsung support site for our laptop:
http://www.samsung.com/us/support...U1A-A01US?

However, now the mouse configuration settings are much more limited for ELAN.

There does not appear to be a setting to end the gesture feature that causes "back button" prompting during web browsing. SO frustrating...

Anyone know how I can get back to the "old" or "newer" ELAN software config to resolve this? Or ANY help at all? Googled relentlessly to no avail, desperate.

Thanks

i actually started to have second thoughts about this computer, it ended up dying on me. it just would not turn on. the power plug always loose just seemed to stop charging the computer at all. also the battery life started to get worse and worse. I bought mine in oct. 2011

i am a hard user, travel a lot to hot dirty places but compared to the asus ul50 it has not held up. I sent it out for repair, but given the new issues it is developing and the limited battery life i dont think i will put anything more into this system and just get an ultra portable.

Oh forgot to mention the wifi issue on this laptop makes it un usable outside of a home or other easy situation. the wifi on this is POS and I called to complain many times with new drivers but no solution.

anybody else found a solution to the wifi issue, it seems like the antenna is not big enough in this laptop and other samsungs. my new ultra book WILL NOT BE A SAMSUNG, AFTER THIS EXPERIENCE.
