    go with the hp.. i had a strange issue with samsung and their bios... HP Bios is very easy to recover if ever needed.

    also the Hp can be made windows 8 with slic 2.2 i believe much easier.

    2Gb video is a major +

    Samsung is UEFI, but HP comes with Windows 7.. So, are you sure HP is UEFI in this case..??

    Windows 8 does not use SLIC 2.2 it is Windows Server 2012 that does.

    I would never go with any HP because of the bad service (in Thailand). Samsung has a much better Service with Spareparts available and fast if needed while HP you'll need a lot of time, up to 6 weeks in Warranty claims and not sure they have the spareparts. Hardware is cheap quality as well! That applies for Thailand, could not speak for other countries!
