Excerpt: Sometimes I swear I could even see smoke-like particles when the picture showing is set to a bright scene, like when it’s morning, but I do realize it really has nothing to do with the Series 5. My brother resides in the United States, and his Series 5 is working in high definition all the time, even on local cable.
Summary: im not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but for the little I do know, I think this machine is very adequate. It is small and compact, and feels nice to the touch. before this I had the newer model (2013) and the build quality is very poor. I ended up taking the 2013 model (notebook 9 I think) and exchanged it for this.
Pros: small, compact, light, fast, trendy design, strong body
Summary: Don't buy a Samsung Ultrabook!!!! It's worth spending a little bit more and getting something better. Hard disc had to be repaired twice in first six months and Samsung after sales care is truly terrible. No idea why they fitted a SSD as it never seems to be used. One of most frustrating things is that it drops WiFi connection every 20 minutes or so.
Pros: Size - portable and fits easily into bag / case
Cons: Drops WiFi connection constantly, gets very hot, hard disc sticks frequently and lots more
Summary: If you should think of buying the 535U3C (with AMD), don't do it. The ventilator does not even last for half a year, and you don't get guarantee either if you're running a different OS like LINUX or an upgraded Windows (* instead of the installed 7 Home). The best is, that they even do not have the ventilator in stock, nor do they know when they will get it!
