Summary: If you like the idea of having an optical drive built into a highly portable notebook, the Samsung Series 5 14-inch is certainly worth considering. It's one of the lightest 14-inch laptops around, features a sturdy design and comes with a comfy keyboard and touchpad. This Ultrabook also does a good job keeping its cool. However, the display's limited viewing angles give us pause, as does the below-average battery life.
Pros: Very light and thin for 14-inch laptop, Good audio, Comfortable keyboard, Runs cool
Cons: Screen has limited viewing angles, Below-average battery life, Keyboard not backlit, Inconsistent wake-from-sleep times
