Summary: I loved this when I got it but hardly used it therefore didn't realise that it only charges the battery up to 80% which is no good for me. So if you want a 100% battery charged, don't buy this.
Summary: I needed a new laptop for my consultancy business and bought this one as it was recommended by a friend. I've been able to use it for everything I need, including connecting to a projector for training which you cannot usually do with a slimline model without an adaptor Very smart and light to transport.
Samsung Series 5 NP530U4C 14 inch Ultrabook - Silver (Intel Core i...

Summary: Bought this for £449 which I thought a good price compared to many ultrabooks. As it has a dvd it may not be classed quite as an ultrabook but it is pretty close and I find the DVD a convenience and the few grammes extra weight is not a problem. I found this easy to get started, very responsive with the ssd cache and i5 chip. I cleared out all the bloatware and removed Samsung's recovery partition. ( I use windows home server ).
Summary: I use it for home recording music with a linux system and it is perfect for the use, in terms of performances and monitor size. This ultrabook it is also very good when considering portability for me that I usually use the bike when moving. Great design and well made building. Last not least it's a good value for money.
Summary: Given the quantity of negative reviews on here thought i'd add a rating to even things up a bit. I've had the laptop for a few days now and so not encountered any problems whatsoever. Think the machine is really solid. I chose it primarily because I was trying to avoid going to Windows 8. Alhtough there are higher spec machines out there, they tend to be very expensive.
Summary: I am computer literate - but not a wonk (!) - and this laptop is just fine by me I used a Samsung NP-Q40 for 6 years and while it is still good, tis bootup has ground almost to a standstill in the last twelve months. While I will work on reinvigorating the Q40 for the family, I decided to treat myself to a new laptop. I have had the Ultrabook for a week and it has been just fine - and straightforward to operate.
