13 April 2012 – Samsung representatives have given us a walkthrough on the 13-inch and 14-inch Ultrabooks from the Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA line.


Both Ultrabooks carry a thin and light aluminum exterior. They are powered by the second generation Intel Core i5 processor, together with 16GB SSD (Solid State Drive) that acts as a cache booster.


However, the user is unable to access to the SSD storage and it is managed automatically by DiskKeeper. The software will track down and cache the software frequently used by the users, allowing the software to start up with a shorter loading time. By using this technology, Samsung has promised a boot up time of 20 seconds or 2 seconds of wake up time. The two Ultrabooks support up to 8GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM.



In addition, the 14-inch model is bundled with a dedicated AMD Radeon HD7550M graphic card together with Intel HD Graphics 3000. The Ultrabook will automatically switches to the dedicated graphic card when running intensive games or applications. We found no signs of struggle when the Ultrabook is running Crysis 2.


In terms of battery life, Samsung reps have confirmed with us that both Ultrabooks would have an approximate of 6 hours of battery life on normal usage, including web browsing and running office applications.


Both the 13-inch and 14-inch Series 5 ULTRA is available in the market now. You can check the pricing and specification below.
