Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch + Windows 8

Posted on 06 June 2012 by

The Samsung Series 5 has always been a well-priced, well balanced Ultrabook and it’s soon to be available in an Ivy Bridge variant. Later in the year we’re going to see Windows 8 upgrades and, according to reports from the show floor at Computex, with a touchscreen.

Laptopmag have had hands-on and there’s a video below. We’re told that it booted from cold in 8 seconds! See below.

Apart from the Ivy Bridge and Windows 8 upgrade the demo on show was pretty much the same as a standard Series 5 13 Ultrabook. That’s bad, because the screen is average but good because we estimate this could be one of the cheapest touch-enabled Ultrabooks to launch come Windows 8 season.
