    I'd give this machine an 8.5 if I could. Everything is awesome about this ultrabook. The larger battery really shows up. Yes, it's rated for 10 hours, but you're more likely to net 7 to 7.5 if you're not leaning in to the machine too much. Still, it's a beautiful laptop and a solid first try at a 15" configuration. Give me a slight key raise over what is currently being used, multi-gesture support on the trackpad, and a full 1080p display to go with the gorgeous Samsung screen, and I'd be inclined to hand out my first perfect 10 score. So close, Samsung!
