Someone explain to me the reason for having winows 8 without having a touchscreen laptop?
Because it is faster than windows 7; way more secure than windows 7; because of power management does better in battery life for the same processor ad battery than win 7; has storage spaces; and you can set it up to interface exactly like win 7 if you like.
review is on windows 7 second generation i3 and this is windows 8 third gen i5. their main detractions on speed and battery life are therefor inapplicable.

why does everyone on the internet complain about the resolution?
Buying choices show most people would rather not overpay another $200 for higher resolution. Scattered people repeatedly posting that buyers should overpay another $200 on $400 laptops don't equal "most people."

It is not nice laptop. Let's say webcam is pretty bad and sound level very low. Almost useless for skype.
Customer Service - is extremely stupid, have to contact them every day to update the status of RMA and still nothing for 10 more days...
If you don't mind used and don't need a gaming laptop, this ultrabook 14" with optical drive is hard to beat at under $400. 15% off as well, which makes it $340 plus tax. http://www.cowboom.com/product/998173
the samsung you note is second generation windows 7 and used. It also only has 4gb vs 6gb. The webcam on the fujitsu is fine for skype, and sound is on par with $400 laptops.
brightest screen of all laptop, thick, ugly design, very durable, water proof keyboard and bluetooth
Windows 8 sucks, and yes true, without touch screen its annoying, might as well use 7
Curious why Windows 8 sucks? I have a Windows 7 laptop and my wife has a Windows 8 tablet and I LOVE it.
Granted ... no clue how people will use Windows 8 without a touch screen - MS designed it around the use of a touch screen and you can't please everyone.
I really really really love it. I've never seen Windows so smooth. Coming back to my laptop is like going back to Windows 3.1 from Windows 95. It's that different!
Honestly - people don't judge it until you've really spent 20-30 minutes to learn it. Playing with it for 2 minutes in the store with the wife nagging me to "let's go!".. didn't show me anything.
The swipes, the gestures, shortcuts are EXTREMELY well thought out and designed. I'm actually considering a Windows 8 phone because I like the tablet so much. I'm not sure it will scale down to phone nicely but I am blown away with the tablet and functionality.
I got the i3 version during the thanksgiving day. The sound from this laptop is very very LOW. I tried all kinds of plugins to boost the audio but the speakers are not capable of higher volume. Fujitsu support also said that the speakers volume is just that.
