Available in 13″ and 14″ screen sizes, the new Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA range from just 14.9-17.6mm thin and 1.45kg light. Thin and light in form factor doesn’t equal thin and light in performance, as the new ultraportable proves with the 2nd generation Intel Core i5-2467M (1.60Ghz) processor. The i5-2467M is an (ULV) Ultra Low Voltage processor based on Intel’s Sandy Bridge micro-architecture, yet packs a punch in overall performance. With up to 8GB of memory and combined with ExpressCache by Diskeeper, the new ultraportable also comes with an Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU or a powerful AMD Radeon HD graphics card. Thanks to its Sandy Bridge underpinnings, the Samsung Notebook Series 5 fast boots in just 20 seconds, with almost instant wake-up from sleep.

    Ultrabook fanatic here went all the way to low yat to chk it out. Heavy 🙁
    Mz say the long batt life feature would come in useful. 14″ with disc drive. i’ll rather go without disc drive as long as it’s light.
