Samsung have announced the availability of their new Series 5 Ultrabooks in India. The new arrivals are designed with affordability in mind and include features that aren’t found too often in other Ultrabooks. They’ll be available in two sizes, a 13-inch and 14-inch model and the latter will be the first in the market to feature a DVD drive as well. The 13-inch Ultrabook will retail at Rs.48,990, while the 14-inch will sell for Rs.54,390.
A new wave of notebooks from Samsung
Taking its design cues from their existing notebook PC lines, particularly the high-end Series 9, the Series 5 Ultrabook features sleek lines and a cool, sophisticated design. To ensure ease-of-use, while on the move, the 13-inch variant is just 14.9 to 17.6mm thin and weighs 1.42kg (with SSD). It features the Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB memory, up to 500GB storage and 16GB SSD with ExpressCache. Consumers can also choose from a 128GB SSD or 256GB SSD, as their preferred storage. To offer maximum connection to other devices, the 13-inch model also carries a full-size HDMI port, along with one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and webcam.
The 14-inch model is equipped with Intel Core i5 processor and has 8GB memory and 16GB SSD with ExpressCache. For larger storage, it can accommodate up to 1TB storage as well as an AMD Radeon HD7550M 1GB graphics card. An integrated optical drive is also installed for maximum convenience. In terms of connectivity, the 14-inch model offers full-size HDMI, VGA, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, 4-in-1 SD card slot, Ethernet and webcam. All the above features are packed into a 20.9mm thin and 1.84kg light chassis. Both displays have a 1366 x 768 resolution with Samsung’s SuperBright Technology (300 nits). With 16 million color saturation and an easy-to-view matte screen, users enjoy the high quality visual experience in a wide range of environments, both indoors and out. Looks like we don’t have to wait for too long for Ultrabooks to get affordable and more is yet to come.
