Reviews for the Samsung 535U3C-A01UK
Source: Trusted Reviews
The 13-inch Samsung Series 5 535U3C-A01 is a great little Ultrabook competitor that manages to keep its price low thanks to AMD innards. It’s slim, sleek, light and very well-built. It offers a great user experience and its screen is a cut above most budget laptops. However, mediocre performance and average battery life mean you may be better off looking at pricier alternatives, especially those offering Windows 8 and touch.

You shouldn't write off the Samsung Series 5 NP535U3C just because it has an AMD processor instead of an Intel processor. Though Intel's Ultrabooks may outperform the AMD Series 5 overall, the Series 5's integrated Radeon HD 7500G graphics are slightly more impressive than Intel's HD 4000 integrated graphics. In addition, the AMD Series 5 is cheaper than its Intel counterpart, and it has excellent speakers for the category. So if you're looking for an ultraportable multimedia machine - and you're not too picky about startup time or branding - the Series 5 deserves a look.

At £500, it’s tempting to forgive the Samsung its faults. It is, after all, at least £100 less than the same machine with an Intel chip, and cheaper than any other ultrabook around. While it seems - superficially - like a bargain, the price is actually dead right: it’s better than a premium netbook but not as fast as a fully modern ultra-light. It’s an excellent budget laptop, but don’t expect much more or you might be disappointed.
