Samsung ATIV Book2 270E5V-K01, notebokcheck.net has a review for another model, Samsung ATIV Book 2 - 270E5E, equiv. of €324 in local shops, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD
One of the guys in our IT department swears in HP and thinks Acer is crap, and I am wary of the reported high glare of Acer's screen; bad because I would be using it to type a lot and would really like to avoid any headaches.
The HP model has the least amount of memory/HDD space, but it is really well done and geared towards heavy office users, with a mat screen and good keyboard. Plus it has a fingerprint sensor! So SF!
Samsung is the cheapest of the three, and also sports a non reflective display. Unfortunately, the review of the model on notebookcheck gives an impression of a not so good keyboard - which as I will be typing a lot, is not good.
I will be paying for whichever laptop I choose in installments, which means the prices will increase by probably another €25-30 due to bank fees and whatnot. Local shops are not very keen on giving you a floor model to test out - they're usually kept under lock and key, behind glass. So I'd appreciate it if I could get feedback from people who have used these/similar models/brands.
I'm crossposting this to several places. Which laptop should I buy?
