The Samsung NP530 is the new 1.4KG Series 5 Ultrabook you saw launched in South Korea a short while back. We’ve now confirmed It’s coming to other countries soon as we’ve just spotted pre-order for it in Germany. The specifications and price are looking very competitive.

Samsung NP350 , specifications, link, gallery.

The Samsung Series 5 NP530 has a very similar specification to the Acer S3. Core i5 2467M / 1.6 GHz, 4GB RAM, 1366×768 13” screen, 500GB (+16GB SSD) hard drive. Apart from the 500GB drive (a Hybrid HDD/SSD) there’s not much difference. Even the weight – 1.4KG – is much the same. Samsung have even matched the Acer S3 down to the price. €799 is exactly the price of the Acer S3 in Europe.

There are some subtle differences though:

  • Ports: You’re getting VGA, Ethernet, mic input and a USB3.0 port. The S3 has none of these.
  • Memory: There’s a free memory slot
  • Battery: You’ve got a 44Wh battery. Thats about 18% larger than the battery on the Acer S3
  • Screen: Matt Finish
  • Unknown at the moment: Keyboard backlight.

You’re also likely to be getting some Samsung quality in there too. They usually (!) make great keyboards, great screens and have some excellent power engineering and quiet fans.

According to some pre-order sites in Germany (E.g. Atelco) the NP530 should be available on the 21st Feb 2012. Still a few months away. That’s the painful bit!

We’ll get this in the database ASAP.
