Samsung Series 5 13.3 (NP530 U3B) Specifications and information
Samsung Series 5 13.3 alternatives
|The Samsung Series 5 13" could be a good value Ultrabook although entry level versions will come with a Hybrid hard drive rather than an all-SSD build and it's relatively heavy at nearly 1.5KG. The keyboard is good, port selection is good and you've got an Intel Centrino WiFi card capable of Wi-Di so at the current €799 pricing in Europe we think it's a better choice than the Acer S3. US pricing is looking a a little higher at $999 [Jan 18 2012]|
|Pricing for SSD-only versions unknown.|

|Toshiba CB30-B-104, 13.3 inch, 1350 grams (2.98 lbs)|
This Toshiba CB30 Chromebook model has a full HD IPS screen and its weight is ok for a 13.3 inch laptop but it's price may not be.

The Envy laptop is HPs thinnest one ever at 12.95mm in an all metal body but you will still get high performance with 6th generation Core i processors and 8GB RAM.

|Dell Latitude E7450 (2015), 14.0 inch, 1550 grams (3.42 lbs)|
The business oriented Dell Latitude E7450 is quite a powerhouse and with a carbon-fibre and magnesium-alloy body coming in at 1.55kgs so it's light for a 14" laptop.
