Exactly what we were looking for in an Ultrabook, and although not perfect, it's very reasonably priced

Samsung Series 5 530U3B review

 

It has barely been a year since Intel launched its Ultrabook specification, but we're already seeing plenty of variety from different manufacturers and, refreshingly, prices are slowly beginning to drop. Samsung's Series 5 could be considered a second...

NP530U3B

 

The Samsung Series 5 is the perfect light laptop for those who want to add a low price into the mix of decent power and good portability. It's a great alternative to some of the premium Ultrabooks out there and makes some smart compromises.

Low Price for an Ultrabook, Good Touchpad and Keyboard, Plenty of Connectivity

No SSD, Plastic Chassis, Heavier than other UltraBooks

Samsung Series 5 530U3B review

 

Far from the perfect Ultrabook, but considering the few compromises and the low price it has a lot of appeal

Like many of its Ultrabook peers, though, image quality leaves something to be desired. It may be bright, but viewing angles are a touch narrow; skin tones are dogged with a cold, bluish tone; and the greyish blacks make for a low contrast ratio of...

Samsung Series 5 Ultra NP530U3B-A02

 

The Samsung Series 5 Ultra NP530U3B-A02 is a handsome, capable ultrabook, but its $1,100 price tag is difficult to justify.

Full-size HDMI port. Supports WiDi. Sleek, lightweight chassis.

Keyboard isn't backlit. Some flexing on the lid. Unremarkable battery life. So-so performance.

Samsung 530U3BI review: Samsung 530U3BI

 

The 13-inch Samsung Series 5 Ultra NP530U3B is a more affordable ultrabook than the executive-line Series 9, and has plenty of ports crammed into its sleek body. Get the hard-drive version, and you'll shave an extra $150 off the price.

The touch pad, keyboard, and battery life aren't as excellent as you'd expect from a laptop this attractive-looking, and a plastic feel throughout makes it feel like a step down from a MacBook Air, which it is, in price.

Samsung's finally made an affordable ultrabook, and the 13-inch Series 5 Ultra is a well-priced and far slimmer product than its 14-inch cousin. Still, it's not a runaway bargain, and it feels like corners have been cut in adapting it from the stellar...

Review Samsung 530U3B-A01DE Notebook

 

Ultra-cheap? A fast flash memory and a big HDD are paired in the new ultrabook 530U3B from Samsung. The slim notebook comes with a bright and matt 13.3 inch screen. At a street price of below EUR 800, it belongs to the cheaper representatives of the...

Elegant design, USB 3.0 and LAN port, High brightness, Matt screen, Good battery life, The elegant and compact build of Samsung's 530U3B meets our taste

Display hinges allow the screen to teeter, SSD cache only; no full-fledged SSD, Low image contrast, A full-fledged SSD as the drive
