Review Samsung Series 5 535U4C Notebook

 

Off the beaten path. Samsung expands its Series 5 family of compact notebooks with a fairly inexpensive 14-inch model. This time, the Korean manufacturer ventures in a new direction and uses AMD's Trinity architecture, which features switchable...

Average viewing angles, - Ho-hum performance of CPU und GPU, - Unpleasant graphics card switching, - Slow hard drive, Non-glare and bright is not quite enough. We would appreciate more contrast, better color space coverage, and better viewing angles

Samsung Series 5 535 review

 

Some laptop shoppers turn and run at the thought of swapping an Intel processor for one from AMD. Of course they shouldn't do that, even though many times an AMD-powered version of a laptop will not offer battery life or application performance on par...

This AMD version of the Samsung Series 5 is a sharp-looking, full-featured 14-inch laptop, with an optical drive and decent graphics.

Samsung's price is the same or more than comparable Intel versions, although it's available from some retailers for a more reasonable price.

The 4-pound Samsung Series 5 isn't as light and portable as some slim 14-inch laptops, but this AMD-powered version can be found at a significant discount if you shop around.
