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.

13.3":

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.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
