I picked this up a month ago. Really liked the form factor and was looking for something to grab for quick meetings without paying Ultrabook, MacAir prices. I'm also a Linux geek and you can boot a version of Ubuntu off of a SD card. Originally, I thought this was great as I could install java (missing on Chrome OS) and maybe Office apps in some form.
Once I got into though I found a couple of gotchas (for me). The ARM version of java is still hard to deal with and running Office apps or a VM on a non-Intel processor was a no go.
I ended up giving the Samsung away and picked up a Acer C7 for $199 and bumped the RAM to 8GB and replace the HD with a 120GB SSD (voids warranty though). Now I dual boot ChromeOS and Chrubuntu and in Chrubuntu can run Office apps under Wine and Windows under VMware. The Celeron 847 and NM10 chipset does a pretty good job for what they are.
Just my experience for those interested in the Samsung. I liked it a lot, just didn't do what I needed.
