    Cheers for the i5 v i7 interpretation, so yeah I think I can live with an i5, that said I'm still going to seek the i7 out. Yep I probably don't need 16GB RAM and I'm guessing it'll be pretty expensive anyway.

    Thanks for the picture of the power pack it looks good, nice and slimline. I hate the thought of a 'premium' notebook only to have a chunky power pack.

    Lucky I live in Switzerland then ;)
    [EDIT - 15" NP900X4? isn't even available in Switzerland according to Samsung.ch]
    I was only going to UK for the keyboard layout.

    Did you get it online or in store? as according to Samsung.it the only version available is i5

    I just got mine, and one of the first things I've noticed about it is that the computer emits a high pitched noise when it's on, regardless of whether the power-pack is on/charging or not.

    A little research reckons it's something to do with CPUs when they go into lower power mode. Does anybody else have this problem?

    Online, from Supernotebook.it, and it is indeed the i7 version. Samsung.it seems to be failing very hard both in accuracy and in usability.

    Mine is completely silent when idling. No CPU noise, no whatever. I guess you have something defective.

    If it is the CPU whine then does using a high performance power plan stop it? I would note that different people have different sensitivity to high frequency sounds - I might not know if my CPU (actually some nearby capacitors) is whining!
