    "After canvassing for the entire month of June i think Samsung Notebook 9 Pro was the best that i have found so I instantly bought it. What i like about it is that it uses S-Pen which will be good for taking down notes during lectures. I also like that it isn't too bright although its screen is just limited to 1080p. This laptop definitely has all the features what a college student is looking for. "

    "This is definitely what should be college students get as their laptop with its value and performance you will appreciate this. I am telling you without a doubt! It is half of the price of some ultrabooks out there. Been using this for two years already i think i might even use it until grad school as long as it remains working and still fast. "

    "Before i bought this laptop I contemplated for a long time if i should buy it even after i read reviews and checked it out on stores. After almost 6 months of using this i did not regret pruchasing this. why? Because it is lightweight, has good battery life, travel size, and good for watching movies as well as web browsing. Isn't that amazing eh? "
