Reviews for the Samsung 535U3C-A02UK
Source: PC Advisor
Producing an ultra-portable laptop that costs less than £500 inevitably involves some compromises, and the 13in Samsung Series 5 won’t win any awards for performance or battery life. Even so, it’ll handle most routine computing tasks perfectly well and its neat, lightweight design makes it a genuine ultra-portable without being ultra-expensive.

If you want to play games on your laptop then you're going to have spend a bit more than this. It was the battery life that shocked us the most. While Samsung may quote up to six hours, when we really pushed the machine its battery expired in a mere two hours. Admittedly you should see significantly more in normal use, but we'd expect much better stamina, even at this price.
