At first it looked great then I saw the track-pad off center which would drive me crazy and the side view which makes it already look dated.

That's cool but I'm a Mac person. I left Windows for personal use decades ago.

So predictable with the negative Samsung comments. Yet people will check to see if they have the better Samsung panel

or hope the rumored BOE displays are as good as the Samsung ones. Or better yet, hope the iPhone 15 they plan to buy uses an actual Samsung display.

I wouldn't trust a PC from Samsung.
That's what everybody said when I got mine. The machine lasted solid 8 years with no problem. It is still around in the hands of a young cousin.


Plus Windows is garbage now.
Why do you say so? Windows 11 is kind of annoying compared to W10, but I would not call it garbage, it has gotten pretty good actually.
