Reviews for the Samsung 530U3C-A02US

60% Samsung Series 5 NP530U3C-A02US 13.3-inch
Source: Comp Reviews English
Samsung's Series 5 ultrabook is sort of a mid-range offering from the company that does a decent job but just doesn't have enough to make it stand out from the crowded 13-inch ultrabook market. The keyboard and trackpad are the standout features of the system that work extremely well for anyone that needs to type for long hours.
