Turn the page. The Samsung Ativ Book 5 is a slim, yet sturdy 14-inch touchscreen Ultrabook based on a previous-generation Ivy Bridge processor. How does the sleek looking system with its dual-core i5 CPU and integrated graphics card stack up against the competition?

Samsung's ATIV Book 5 may not be the big redesign that the name implies but it takes a solid design and upgrades it with a new touchscreen display and some amazing battery life. There are a number of elements of the system though that drag down the system from being excellent including a dim display with viewing angle issues, just a single USB 3.0 port and only 4GB of memory.
