90% Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook NP540U3C-A01
Source: BC Hardware English
I'm a huge fan of Ultrabooks thanks to their ability to be super portable without having to sacrifice performance. Choosing an Ultrabook can be a bit of a challenge now that there are so many makes and models available, but Samsung has done a great job of creating 3 series of Ultrabooks to fit your needs.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format.
