Reviews for the Samsung 540U3C-A01UB

70% Samsung Series 5 13.3-inch UltraTouch Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English Archive.org version
All in all, the Samsung Series 5 13.3-inch UltraTouch is a solidly performing mid-range, touch-screen ultrabook that feels reasonably well-built as well. But apart from a likable keyboard, it doesn't really stand out from several other systems with similar internals. That's not necessarily a problem, especially if you like the looks of the Series 5.

60% Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch 13-inch Review
Source: Laptop Mag English Archive.org version
The Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch lives up to its name in some ways, providing an accurate touch screen for navigating Windows 8 along with good overall performance and above-average audio quality. And while the battery life could be better, this notebook's 6 hours of runtime beats competing touch notebooks. Unfortunately, someone at Samsung forgot the sandpaper.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
