Reviews for the Samsung 530U4B-A02US

70% Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook 530U4BI
Source: CNet English
Well, it was fun while it lasted. The ultrabook -- a concept built around mimicking the best parts of Apple's MacBook Air -- has now become so broad that nearly anything qualifies, at least if this latest example from Samsung is any indicator. If you ignore the ultrabook branding and instead think of this as a somewhat slim midsize, mainstream laptop, the 14-inch Samsung Series 5 is a fine example of the form.

The Samsung Series 5 NP530U4B is another 14-inch ultrabook that has hit the market. This one is extremely lightweight and portable and has a very comfortable keyboard. It is one of the first ultrabooks to have a built-in optical drive, which might be a deal maker for some. It does lack in battery life and some performance, so it's not without some flaws.

If you like the idea of having an optical drive built into a highly portable notebook, the Samsung Series 5 14-inch is certainly worth considering. It's one of the lightest 14-inch laptops around, features a sturdy design and comes with a comfy keyboard and touchpad. This Ultrabook also does a good job keeping its cool. However, the display's limited viewing angles give us pause, as does the below-average battery life.

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabooks pictures and hands-on
Source: Pocket Lint English
Officially speaking, the Samsung Series 9 laptop is not an Ultrabook - at least, Samsung has chosen not to call it one much like Apple hasn't bothered including the MacBook Air either. Instead, Samsung announced a couple of lesser machines at CES 2012, so Pocket-lint went hands-on to see if they're still impressive enough.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
