Samsung 5 Series Ultra is a series of 9, which preceded the Ultrabook brand). There’s just one problem: it weighs almost 4 pounds, and measures 0.82 inches thick. In other words, this 14-inch laptop closer to regular ol’ ultrapor than Ultrabook.
Ultrabooks. In fact, it seems almost chunky as a MacBook Pro 15-inch, which measures 24 mm (0.95 inches) thick.
Needless to say, the 5 Series Ultra hardly inspires the same ooh, aahs and oh-my-gosh-that-laptop-is-so-thin out as others do Ultrabooks
But there is a reason that this particular laptop is great and so is relatively strong: have a DVD-RW drive and the 500 GB hard drive. We review the model, with a price of $ 950 (as of March 30, 2012), features the Intel Core i5-2467M processor, 4 GB RAM, and Windows 7 Home Premium. It also has built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and 16 GB of solid-state drive cache helps it boot fast and resume from Hibernate faster (a must for the Ultrabook brand).
5 series sport Ultra minimalistic design and it looks an awful lot like Apple’s MacBook Pro line. Laptop cover is smooth, lightweight brushed aluminum slate-grey with a small silver Samsung logo on the left side. The Interior is mostly the same: smooth, lightly brushing, and slate-grey, although not all are aluminum (only the wrist rest area is metal; the rest is plastic). The Laptop feels solid (and weight, to Ultrabook), although a little squeaky hinges.
