Ultrabooks Come From Samsung
Samsung releases two models Ultrabook, but not really be because they do not stick to the specifications of Intel.
Use the term "ultrabook" to describe phones that are not according to Intel, he must dare. Samsung dares introducing two new computers Laptop "5 Series" which were first launched in Korea. We discover a model 13 "that weighs 1.4 kg and another 14" that weighs 1.8 Kg Two machines that do not comply strictly to the specifications of ultrabooks developed by Intel. For example, the 14 "excess of 400 grams the weight limit allowed and also exceeds the maximum thickness to 20.9 mm.
For the screen is pretty basic. Of 1366 x 768 pixel mode gloss anti-reflective coating. In the model of 14 ", you will find a processor Intel Core i5 and up to 8 GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and 16 GB of SSD, an optional optical drive and graphics card AMD Radeon HD 7550M. Connectivity, more USB ports, the RJ45, VGA and one HDMI. WiFi and Bluetooth are of course of the game, but we have no details as to the standards used.
The model of 13 "has the same glossy screen and the same definition, all in a frame not exceeding 14.9 mm. Inside, 500 GB hard drive coupled an SSD of 16 GB The graphics this time is limited to the controller processor. For ports, it will be the same as those of model 14 ". To as LGSamsung has developed its system ExpressCache to start his machine in 7 Seconds from hibernation and 2 seconds from sleep mode classic.
Both portable "5 Series" - commonly used name for the range Chromebook - are diverted to fill the role of Ultrabook. The Korean brand would it have been taken by surprise by the sudden buzz of ultrabooks? In any case, it will cost $ 1,125 for the entry level with no options and up to $ 1298 for all options on the model 13 "or up to $ 1,167 and $ 1,341 for the model 14." It is still far from the direction of Intel's pricing. To see if the 13 "deserves its Ultrabook as compared to Asus UX31, dell vostro 3700 battery and Acer Aspire S3 we tested.
Battery side, Intel recommends a battery life of 5 hours at least. The ultrabooks therefore can embed a dedicated graphics card if they want, and be equipped with all conceivable options, they need to just pass the bar 5 hours to be eligible under dell latitude e6400 battery. As for storage, again the choice is left to the manufacturers, Intel advocating only a start and a wake in seconds. As for Samsung, the choice of hybridization is perfectly allowed, and already seen the Acer Aspire S3.
Finally, on prices, Samsung positions its machines beyond the famous $ 1000. But Intel tells us that if a maximum rate that it calls for, it is only a recommendation and a computer can not lose his title because of ultrabook its label in stores. Verdict, the Samsung Series 5 are therefore ultrabooks. Maybe not what was expected of the dell latitude e6410 battery, but they meet the criteria for Intel.
