Reviews for the Samsung 530U3C-A01DE

84% Review Samsung Series 5 530U3C-A01DE Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Ultrabook update. We reviewed the Samsung Series 5 530U3B-A01DE in mid-March 2012. The ultrabook has now been revised to feature an Intel Ivy Bridge dual-core processor. Virtually everything else, including the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of 799 Euro ($999 USD), remains unchanged. In this review, we will examine exactly what has changed and who would benefit from the revision.
Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch Review
Source: Ubergizmo English English
The prospect of having a touchscreen ultrabook sounded like one that I would absolutely enjoy having. I use tablets and smartphones on a daily basis, so why shouldn’t my ultrabook incorporate that same technology so I could poke and prod my Windows 8 machine as much as I like. Considering Windows 8 was built with touchscreens in mind, it made absolute sense to me a touchscreen ultrabook would be a great idea.

80% Samsung Series 5 Touch Ultrabook Review
Source: Think Digit English
As an ultrabook, the Series 5 builds on what the previous edition offered, with the added touchscreen for Windows 8. But, do you really want to pay a sort of premium for that extra feature? If yes, this is a conventional ultrabook that does not disappoint. It is a fairly good deal for what it claims to offer. But, if the touch feature might end up being a less-than-often used feature, we recommend you pick up a previous Series 5 edition, with the same 13.3-inch display, for roughly Rs. 10,000 less.
