Reviews for the Samsung 530U3C-A01US

80% Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch review
Source: Techradar English
The Series 5 Ultra Touch feels like it could be a world-class laptop a lot of the time, but the rough edges mean that it ultimately falls short. It's still a solid option for home use, but it's not the one Ultrabook to rule them all that it could've been.

60% Samsung Series 5 535
Source: Techreview Source English
The Samsung Series 5 535 is a 14-inch ultraportable that isn't quite as light and portable as some other similar laptops but it does have an optical drive and good graphics capabilities. It is powered by an AMD CPU, which does well against its Intel counterpart but it does come up slightly short.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
