Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch – Samsung’s everyday Ultrabook with a touch enabled screen
7 April 2013
Conclusion: Samsung is selling the new Series 5 UltraTouch for $800 or $850, depending on the processor of choice. Both models have identical specs otherwise – 4GB of RAM, the HDD + ExpressCache combo, the same display and everything. Not too bad, but with the competition heating up, the price might have to go lower fast (which is actually a win for the potential buyers).
Conclusion: With the Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch you've got an Ultrabook that's ready to be your best buddy in college, your friendly office companion, or your coffee shop cohort. While the Samsung notebook line doesn't hold quite the "cool" factor their smartphones and tablets have earned over the past few years, they still connect in more ways than any other machine - particularly if you want to work with the oddity that is AllShare.
Summary: The prospect of having a touchscreen ultrabook sounded like one that I would absolutely enjoy having. I use tablets and smartphones on a daily basis, so why shouldn’t my ultrabook incorporate that same technology so I could poke and prod my Windows 8 machine as much as I like. Considering Windows 8 was built with touchscreens in mind, it made absolute sense to me a touchscreen ultrabook would be a great idea.
Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch review: a solid, if slightly overpriced, mid-range Ultrabook
16 February 2013
Summary: It'll be easier for us to name the best mid-range Ultrabook once we've tested a few more, but for now we can confidently say the Series 5 UltraTouch offers a comfortable typing experience, attractive design and battery life that isn't great , per se, but at least falls toward the upper range of what we've been seeing from other touchscreen systems.
Pros: Decent battery life for a touch system, Attractive design, Narrow bezels, responsive touchscreen, Comfortable keyboard
Cons: Some touchpad issues, Heavy, even for a touchscreen Ultrabook, Other laptops offer the same or better specs for less money
Summary: There is a lot to like about the Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch. One of the things we loved was the convergence of the accurate & responsive touchscreen with the amazing keyboard. It’s good for a lot of things indeed, especially with Windows 8, but we found some things that could use improvement.
