Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook™ finally unleashed

Januar 10, 2012

Samsung’s first Ultrabook goes beyond thin and light

Today at CES, Samsung Electronics Co. UK, Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, announces the new Samsung Notebook Series 5 Ultrabook™ which delivers performance beyond all expectations for a thin and light notebook.

The Series 5 Ultrabook™ is powered by a 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor; combined with an ExpressCache™ system by Diskeeper and a powerful AMD Radeon™ HD graphics card, to ensure it delivers incredible experiences from its thin and light form factor.

Neil Sawyer, Head of IT Marketing for Samsung UK & Ireland, said, “Based on in-depth market research and consumer surveys, we propose a new type of Ultrabook™ which will change the perception of Ultrabooks™ among consumers. Our findings indicate that consumers demand much more than just a thin and light notebook; they want better performance and user storage on a daily basis, as digital files are becoming larger. The Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook™ will be the first to answer these needs. The heavily competitive and fast changing media environment demands for a device that will meet these requirements and that is why we present the Series 5 Ultrabook™.”

Unleash Ultra Features

Available in 13” and 14”, the Series 5 Ultrabook™ reveals its performance through an Intel® Core™ i5-2467M processor, up to 8GB memory, ExpressCache™ system by Diskeeper and AMD Radeon™ HD graphics card. As a result, the Series 5 Ultrabook™ is able to fast boot in just 20 seconds, wake up in 2 seconds, whilst web browsing is twice as fast as the previous generation notebook PCs.

Performance is nothing without space to store data and due to the development of digital image devices and various media platforms, files are getting larger, increasing the need for bigger user storage. Despite the recent trend of cloud storage, local storage is still preferred among users. To meet these needs the Series 5 Ultrabook™ 14” offers up to 1TB storage capacity ensuring that users never need to carry a peripheral storage device with them.

The performance has been further enhanced by the extended battery life. The Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook™ delivers up to 6.4 hours of battery life on a single charge. The Samsung Battery Life Plus is a true anti-aging battery technology, which keeps 80% of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1500 charging cycles or three years.

Ultrabook of your choice

To meet the concept of being the true companion of consumers, the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook™ will be offered in 13” and 14”. To ensure ease-of-use while on the move, the Series 5 Ultra 13” is just 14-17.6mm thin and 1.38kg light. The Intel® Core™ i5 processor, up to 8GB memory, up to 500GB storage and 16GB iSSD with ExpressCache™ ensures that performance on-the-go is not compromised. Consumers can also choose from a 128GB SSD or 258GB SSD as their preferred storage. To offer maximum connection to other devices, the 13” model also carries a full-size HDMI port along with one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, a 4-in-1 multi SD card slot, an Ethernet connection and built-in webcam.

The 14” model equipped with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, up to 8GB memory and 16GB iSSD with ExpressCache™ system offers exceptional performance. For larger storage and heightened visual experience, the Series 5 Ultrabook™ k 14” embraces up to 1TB storage as well as an AMD Radeon™ HD7550M 1GB graphics card. An integrated Optical Disc Drive is also installed for maximum convenience. In terms of connectivity, the 14” model offers full-size HDMI, VGA, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, a 4-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and built-in webcam. All the above features are packed into a 20.9mm thin and 1.84kg light chassis.
