    I'm interested in buying a series 5 ultrabook. It has no CD/DVD drive, though. I want a machine on which I can use my desktop progs like Microsoft Word, Dragon, etc. How would I be able to do this? Many thanks.

    Hi Rognvald, You will need to move any applications that you wish to install onto a USB flash drive and install them to the Ultrabook from that.  Thanks.

    Shows as coming with 4gb standard, but can it be increased? To what? How many slots does it have? Can't see anything in the specs or manuals to suggest it can, which seems a bit limiting for a high end ultrabook

    You need to give more details about your computing products - these arent microwaves. Full information about how much RAM they can have, is the SSD upgradeable, etc should be published. Look at HP or Dell for ideas.

    Does laptop have a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip so that you can securely encrypt the drive with Microsoft Bitlocker?

    I want to buy one but due to the nature of my work I need at least 8GB of RAM.

    Hi Jordan, There is no planned release for this notebook with 8GB of RAM at present. Thanks

  • Jordan 1 years ago

    Hopefully the new Intel CPU will find its way into this flagship laptop sooner than later. At that time supporting more RAM would make this product near perfect.

    Hi, DOWNGRADE WINDOWS 8 I am sorry to hear of the problems you are having with your Samsung laptop’s operating system. I can understand the inconveniences that software issues may cause. Unfortunately, not all Windows 8 models are down gradable, see the licensing link below before attempting a downgrade. www.microsoft.com/oem/en/licensing/sblicensing/pages/downgrade_rights.aspx#fbid=FGced79fcW3 How to check if Model is supported: 1. Update SW Update to Latest Version 2. Click Find Model 3. Input the model name in the top right of the window 4. For example, if you input "NP900X3B", you will see the different models listed. Click the correct one. 5. If the model is down gradable, you will see not only "Windows 8" but also "Windows 7" 6. If that model is not down gradable after inputting "NP900X3A", you will see "Windows 8" only. Windows 8 Downgrade Process: 1.
