Reviews for the Samsung 540U3C-A02UB

a solid, if slightly overpriced, mid-range Ultrabook
Source: Engadget English
It'll be easier for us to name the best mid-range Ultrabook once we've tested a few more, but for now we can confidently say the Series 5 UltraTouch offers a comfortable typing experience, attractive design and battery life that isn't great, per se, but at least falls toward the upper range of what we've been seeing from other touchscreen systems.

78% Slim but sturdy, for less than you'd think
Source: CNet English
I've looked at Windows 8 laptops that cost $1,300 or more, as well as ones that dip down below $600. The former tend to be very nice, but hard for everyday consumers to swallow, while the latter can be functional, but plasticky. For $849, the 13-inch Core i5 Series 5 makes a compelling argument, especially when you consider its 6-hour-plus battery life.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

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. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
