Samsung reveals Series 5 Ultrabook

Thin yet powerful and boasting up to 1TB of storage, Samsung claims its Series 5 Ultrabook will change consumers' perceptions.

Samsung has finally unveiled its Notebook Series 5 Ultrabook, which it claims delivers "performance beyond all expectations".

The device is available with either a 13 or 14-inch screen, and utilises the AMD Radeon HD graphics card.

Processing is taken care of by an Intel Core i5-2467M processor with 8GB of memory, booting up in inside 20 seconds and waking up in just two. Samsung also claims that this ultrabook allows for internet browsing that is twice as fast as the previous generation of notebook PCs.

Other features include a massive 1TB of storage space with the 14-inch model - not via a cloud network but on the device itself - which Samsung claims is necessary to meet the needs of the modern internet user.

Alternatively, the 500GB storage space on the 13-inch model allows the firm to reduce the device's size so that it is just 17.6mm thick at its widest point, weighing a mere 1.38kg.

Neil Sawyer, head of IT marketing for Samsung UK & Ireland, said based on consumer feedback, the Series 5 is a new type of Ultrabook which will change people's perception of these devices.

"Our findings indicate that consumers demand much more than just a thin and light notebook; they want better performance and user storage on a daily basis, as digital files are becoming larger," he said.

"The Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook will be the first to answer these needs. The heavily competitive and fast-changing media environment demands for a device that will meet these requirements."

Research from iSuppli suggests that ultrabook sales will jump dramatically in 2012, thanks largely to backing from chip manufacturing giant Intel.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show 2012, Intel announced plans to release 75 new ultrabooks in this year alone.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801267343-ADNFCR
