The company says that the new notebook redefines computing experience by offering top of the line performance in a thin, light and stylish device.
“We ended 2011 on a high note with 66% growth in the Samsung Notebook PC business in the region. We are confident, that the launch of the Series 5 ULTRA will further strengthen our notebook lineup and solidify our growing position within the Notebook PC industry”, said Denzil Dsouza, business head of Notebooks. “With the Series 5 ULTRA, consumers will be able to enjoy superior performance, trendy looks and complete portability in a thin and lightweight device and is a Full Option Ultrabook”
Available in 14 inches, the Series 5 Ultra reveals its performance through an Intel Core i5-2467M processor, up to 8GB memory, ExpressCache system by Diskeeper and AMD Radeon HD graphics card. As a result, the Series 5 Ultra is able to fast boot in just 20 seconds, wake up in 2 seconds, whilst web browsing is twice as fast as the previous generation notebook PCs, the company said.
“Performance alone is insufficient without enough space to store your data. Due to the development of digital image devices and various media platforms, files are getting larger every day, increasing the need for bigger user storage. Despite the recent trend of cloud storage, local storage is still preferred among users on a daily basis. Not to compromise these needs the Series 5 Ultra 14” offers up to 500 GB ultra storage capacity ensuring that users never need to carry a peripheral storage device with them,” said Dsouza.
In addition, the Series 5 Ultra is said to deliver up to 6.4 hours of battery life on a single charge, to make sure users enjoy the ultra features throughout the day. “The Samsung Battery Life Plus is a true anti-aging battery technology which keeps 80% of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles per three years. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than other notebooks,” he said.
