Like them or not, Ultrabooks have definitely helped make PCs look better. Thanks to the dimension restrictions, manufacturers are compelled to build a powerful system within a compact chassis. And with the advent of Windows 8 and its touch-oriented UI, Ultrabooks have become increasingly sleek.
Samsung’s range of Series 5 Ultrabooks is a great example of superb construction, powerful hardware and a software platform that’s geared towards productivity and entertainment. A Series 5 Ultrabook is perfect in terms of portability and great for use in any environment, be it office, outdoors or at home on your couch. Here's a video preview of the Series 5 Touch Ultrabook:
Thanks to the thin and light body, Series 5 Ultrabooks don’t present users with sore arms after a few minutes of carrying it. The touch capability means that users can get the most out of the pre-installed Windows 8 OS, which has been built to be used on touch devices primarily. In keeping with the Ultrabook way of life, the Series 5 Ultra will get a long battery life and the battery in the Ultrabook has been tested to last through 1500 charging cycles and has been found to be good for three years in Samsung’s tests.
Sleek and feather-light design
Built using a combination of aluminium and fibre glass, the Series 5 Ultrabooks are not only powerful, but also great accessories for the modern professional. In addition, the Series 5 Ultra range benefits from the top-of-the-line hardware specs. Thanks to the latest Intel processors and the benefits of an iSSD, boot times have been vastly reduced. Fast Start mode allows users to wake up their PC from sleep in two seconds. The Series 5 Ultrabook comes with 500 GB to 1 TB of storage in combination with iSSD cards for faster application load times. In terms of connectivity, the Series 5 Ultrabook brings a full-sized HDMI port, VGA adapter, support for RJ45 and a collection of USB 3.0 ports. The Series 5 Ultra supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n standards.
The perfect combination of touch and type
The 13.3-inch screen with a 1366x768 resolution is one of the brightest in the business, thanks to the 300nit Superbright panel along with image enhancer technology. Users will find the Series 5 Ultrabook up to any task they can throw at it. The Intel Core-i5 and i7 ULV processors deliver superfast performance, but at the same time manage to keep power consumption to a minimum. As a result, battery life on the Series 5 Ultrabook is about as pleasant an experience as you are likely to find on any competing Ultrabook. The 52Wh battery delivers nearly seven hours of continuous usage on one charge.
A great package
With the Windows 8 UI built around touch interaction on PCs, it only makes sense for potential buyers to get the best touch and typing experience. Samsung’s Series 5 Ultra range brings just the sort of devices that can address this need. The combination of great hardware, a full-fledged operating system and the high-end construction results in a PC experience unlike any other.
