The Samsung Ativ Book 5 is a respectable, subdued entry in the mid-range Ultrabook market. Everything about the system is conservative, from design to specifications. And for some, that may be a boon. This is a simple, functional workhorse best suited for users who just want to get some basic work done.

The Samsung ATIV Book 5 is the latest Windows 8 powered touch screen laptop. It's extremely portable and offers extra long battery life, a comfortable keyboard and good performance. The design of the Samsung ATIV Book 5 is one of its selling points. The black chassis is made of aluminum and it looks elegant, yet robust. The lid, however, does show fingerprints rather easily. The keyboard deck is made of glossy black plastic, which does look good against the aluminum finish.
