Notebookcheck's Best of September 2012

 

Opposites. Is a 1500 Euros (~$1956) Ultrabook too pricy? So a Vaio for 2400 Euros (~$3131) would be even further out of your range? What about an AMD netbook for 250 Euros (~$326)? Too cheap? Do you feel the same way about a ThinkPad for 350 Euros...

A different platform, yet the interior life is almost identical. The input is almost identical to the professional ThinkPad E125

Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C Review: AMD Takes on Intel's Ultrabook

 

It's only 0.7 inch thick, and it weighs just 3.35 pounds (3.8 pounds with power block), but the 13.3-inch Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C doesn't qualify as an Ultrabook. The reason? "Ultrabook" is a trademark belonging to Intel--and the Series 5 NP535U3C...

Good GPU performance ; Good speakers for an ultrabook

Mediocre battery life ; Unimpressive overall performance

AMD-powered ultraportable laptop is as thin and light as an Ultrabook, but can't match the performance of its Intel-based rivals.

Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C-A01US

 

The Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C-A01US gives you the portability of an ultrabook at a lower price, but compromises on performance.

Bargain price. Slim, light design. Full-size HDMI port. Matte-finish display.

Poor performance. Short battery life. Awkward card reader.

Samsung Series 5 13.3" Touch Screen Intel Core i5/8GB/128GB SSD Ultrabook Review (NP540U3C-A01CA)

 

The Samsung Series 5 13.3" Touch screen Ultrabook (NP540U3C-A01CA) I am reviewing today arrived to ModSynergy without any issues directly from Samsung. The first time you see the box it comes in, you really notice there is nothing plain about it....

Apparently I've stated that there are quite a few faults with the Ultrabook, but at the same time, it didn't have anything catastrophically wrong that compromised the experience, other than the poor performing SanDisk U100 Solid State Drive it came...

Samsung's NP535U3C-A02UK comes up short in performance

Decent performance ; Improved Fusion graphics performance ; Capacious HDD ; Nice keyboard

Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C-A02UK review

 

The Samsung Series 5 notebook is not, it must be said, the most original range of laptops. We looked at the 13.3in-screen version, and its smooth curves and metallic-grey finish are clearly inspired by Apple's MacBook Air.

Producing an ultra-portable laptop that costs less than £500 inevitably involves some compromises, and the 13in Samsung Series 5 won’t win any awards for performance or battery life. Even so, it’ll handle most routine computing tasks perfectly well and...

Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C review

 

When is an Ultrabook not an Ultrabook? When it's Samsung's latest Series 5 NP535U3C, of course. Because although this shares the same, shape, name and materials of construction as the Series 5 Ultrabook, inside there's an A6 processor and graphics chip...

Looks more expensive than it is, Supermodel proportions

A little underpowered, Not the best display

Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C-A01UK review

 

It's only 14.9mm thick, and it weighs just 1.5kg, but the 13.3-inch Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C doesn't qualify as an Ultrabook. The reason? "Ultrabook" is a trademark belonging to Intel - and the Series 5 NP535U3C doesn't use an Intel processor....

You shouldn't write off the Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C just because it has an AMD processor instead of an Intel processor. Though Intel's Ultrabooks may outperform the AMD Series 5 overall, the Series 5's integrated Radeon HD 7500G graphics are slightly...
