The Samsung Series 7 is, in my eyes, one of the best Ultrabooks out there right now. It combines some of the best elements of Ultrabooks in one tidy package. I had a chance to check it out at CeBIT last week and I’m now sure it will be high on the list of many readers over the next 6 months.

10 hours Battery Life on an Ultrabook. Test and How-To

Tags: , , , , , ,


P1130862While Ultrabooks generally perform to similar efficiencies under load there’s quite a difference when it comes to near-idle operations and that can seriously impact the length of time you can use an Ultrabook as an offline word processor. As a blogger that’s a very important scenario for me and I suspect that if you’re offline and answering a bunch of emails or writing a presentation or report, this scenario is important to you too. If you choose the right Ultrabook you can get 10 hours of typing on one battery charge.

Samsung Series 7 (3)

The Samsung Series 7 Ultra isn’t an Ultrabook convertible which means it’s not getting the best of media attention right now but please, take a closer look because the specs are spot-on for many of you that could be looking for a ‘pro’ Ultrabook.

Samsung Series 9 Appears with Ivy Bridge – Confused?

Tags: , , , ,


We’re confused. Trying to get a hold on the models numbers, specifications and availability of the new Samsung Series 9 in just the USA, UK and Germany is driving us crazy and adding to the confusion today is news via Engadget that Samsung UK have listed an Ivy Bridge version of the gorgeous Series 9 2012. There’s also an Ivy Bridge version of the 13.3” version appearing in Austria. The 900X3C with 4GB of RAM and the Ivy Bridge i5-3317UM is showing for €1253 with an expected availability of 21 May. We don’t believe any Ivy-Bridge Ultrabook will ship before June but remember that the Series 5 is already launched and, importantly, not an Ultrabook!

Samsung Series 5 NP530 _2_

I’ve just finished the main text for the full Samsung Series 5 13” Ultrabook review. It’s been a tough one. [Details, specs, gallery here, Review will be live tomorrow and linked on this page.]

To all intents and purposes the Series 5 is a simple, unfussy and polite Ultrabook but there’s a lot going on under the hood. It’s a swan! Express Cache is doing it’s stuff to improve boot, hibernation and application startup times and Turbo is giving a leg-up where needed; but only a little one. It seems the Samsung Series 5 has been de-tuned in order to keep it quiet.
