  • Summary: 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. The edges on this Ultrabook are simply too sharp, which resulted in some uncomfortable moments.
  • Pros: Accurate touch screen, Crisp sound quality, Solid and slim brushed aluminum design
  • Cons: Sharp edges, Keyboard feels stiff and not backlit,

  • Summary: The Samsung Series 5 ultrabook offers the sort of clean, mature design you'd expect to see in a big city boardroom. Sadly though, it doesn't offer enough processor performance or screen resolution to warrant its relatively high price.
  • Cons: Average performance isn't justified by high price; underwhelming screen resolution; average battery life.

  • Conclusion: The spacious trackpad at the bottom is great for navigating around Windows, and also supports multi-gestures like two finger scrolling and pinch-to-zoom. It’s not clickable though, so you’ll have to tap on the trackpad or use the buttons at the bottom. While the buttons were of a decent size, I found them to be little too ‘clicky’ when used repeatedly.
