Reviews for the Samsung 540U3C-A01CA

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.

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.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
