Review Samsung 540U3C Ultrabook

 

That special touch. The Samsung Series 5 540U3C is the successor

Good mobility; Lightweight and compact dimensions; Bright touchscreen; Operating elements; Maintenance-friendly

Display hinges; Contrast and black values

The Samsung 540U3C has its own predecessor, the Samsung 530U3C, to compete with. But since the current price of the latter lies only about 70 Euros (~$91) beneath the new version, the pros of this review device prevail, for example the SSD and the...

The price of the Series 5 UltraTouch might entice those of you who are curious to try an ultrabook equipped with a touchscreen as its $849.99 price tag is certainly lower than competing touchscreen ultrabooks, which typically range closer to $1,000....

Samsung Series 5 Ultra 540U3C (13.3" - Core i5 3317U - Windows 8 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 500 GB HDD)

 

Windows 8 touch-screen laptops to date have largely fallen into two categories -- really high-end systems, from $1,200 to $1,600 or more, with slim, sexy designs; or else entry-level models that cram in a touch screen, but at the expense of design,...

With a slim, sturdy design and a powerful mainstream CPU, the touch-enabled Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch is a great sub-$900 13-inch Windows 8 machine.

Good thing it has a touch screen, because the touch pad is a bit jumpy. Performance is slower than that of similar Core i5 laptops.

Samsung's midprice Series 5 UltraTouch looks and feels like a more expensive machine, but keeps it simple by skipping the complex hybrid mechanics of so many new Windows 8 systems.

The Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch NP540U3C-A01UB gives you a 13-inch ultrabook, married to a touch screen display and Microsoft's touch-friendly Windows 8 operating system. While it may not flip and fold like the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 , the Samsung...

The total Ultrabook package?

Good performance ; Responsive touchscreen ; Good usability ; Good image quality

Samsung Series 5 NP540U3C

 

A smart, affordable 13-inch touchscreen ultrabook. What could be better?

Smart design and decent build quality ; Outstanding keyboard ; Cool & quiet

Screen very reflective ; Iffy horizontal and vertical viewing angles ; Touchscreen not that useful ; Large premium for touchscreen

Intel’s integrated HD 4000 graphics chip doesn’t totally preclude 3D gaming, but it will limit you severely. In our low intensity test (the fun and free TrackMania Nations racing game) the Samsung Series 5 NP540U3C managed 45.9 frames per second (fps)...

Samsung NP540U3C-A01UK review

 

The Samsung NP540U3C is a small, stylish ultrabook that ships with Windows 8. Part of Samsung's Series 5 range, it's worth diving in straight away to discuss one of its main attraction, a touchscreen.

Balancing portability with power, the 13.3in Samsung NP540U3C-A01UK is a solid ultrabook that’s flexible enough for home use or on the road. Suitable for media playback and productivity, the price isn’t too bad either.
