Reviews for the Samsung 530U4E-S02DE

86% Review Samsung Series 5 530U4E-S02DE Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Understatement. Samsung restyles its midrange dubbed Series 5 with plain, high-end looks and fresh components. Onboard we find a matte 14-inch screen, a dual-core processor from Intel and a dedicated graphics from AMD. This configuration is currently priced at about 800 Euros (~$1034).
Samsung Series 5 Media Ultrabook
Source: Gadgetmix English
Samsung’s Series 5 is a mid-range 14-inch Windows 8 notebook with high-end finishes for about $800. Let’s take a closer look. The Series 5 plumps for the minimalist style, following the current fad for lightish-colored mixtures of plastic and metal surfacing. The Series 5 is on sale already priced at $850, and the manufacturer’s decription of it as a ‘multimedia Ultrabook’ is well justified.

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.
