I think Dell takes it away on build, looks and ASS.
Lolz , :rofl.Someone above said they're both good, its a close call. LOL

1. Heats up while extreme (Max Payne 3 on high) , about 90 degs for cpu and 85 for gpu .
2. Some pieces , most of them being i5 ones are throttling after heating up while playing extreme games on high .
Dell plusses -
1. ASS . No questions their ASS is best in the computer market .
2. Weaker GPU doesnt heat up .
3. Backlit keyboard .
1. Doesnt look too good .
2. All the plusses of Samsung .
Now I was also skeptical of buying a Samsung laptop but then i analysed considering past trends that -
1. People were skeptical of buying samsung TV's when Bravias were out there but that changed in a very short span and now Samsung TV sales and services are the best .
2. People were skeptical of buying any samsung phone before the Galaxy series .Heck, even the original galaxy s dint sell well enough in India . But they provided good sevice always and now you know what they are .
3. Samsung are world leaders in consumer electronics .
Considering the above points and the offer of 2 year warranty I took the risk , and I am glad I did coz this is absolutely beautiful .
If I would have bought dell it would have been only for one reason , Accidental coverage . But now I will be careful with my laptop.
I hope this was fair and please do correct me and add on to it where wrong.
Ps. And though looks are completely subjective I dint quite like the design of the 15rse ( I checked it out in the showroom ) . It was too rounded and the key placements were weird as it dint have a numpad included. Build quality of both seemed pretty nice .
There isn't any heating issue with the Samsung laptop per se.
If anyone makes such a powerful laptop with a great GPU, and you play games at extreme settings on it, it will heat up. It isn't rocket science you know.
None of the i7 owners have faced any throttling issues yet. Those who have seem to be getting them fixed. In anycase if its a driver issue Nvidia will fix it.
Problem isnt the heating as has been mentioned in previous posts that IB processor can take it up. Main problem is throttling. Any multimedia laptop will get heat up while playing games at such settings but throttling is different thing. No one can ignore that and go on his way to buy, as its not like some minute trouble.
1)Samsung used a i7 which is slightly faster than the dell but consumes more power and produce more heat. Very rarely you would run a program which would use i7's full power thus in real life usage you would never notice the difference in processors unless you run a benchmark. So you gotta ask yourself, is tolerating more heat really worth it?
