I own a Samsung Series 5, which is gifted to me by my uncle. It is a mild sized tablet notebook with a large enough screen and a Core i5 processor to get most of my work done comfortably. And the touch screen is great to use with Windows 8.it seems like an ideal machine for the executive who is looking for function over form and within budget. What I like: The ultra boasts of solid construction with a brushed metal look on its lid and around the keyboard area.
It has a nice modern look: tapering shape edge at the front and that contours on the side towards the screen to include USB, HDMI and LAN ports. From lid up to login screen, the laptop takes less than 15 seconds to boot up. Keys are evenly spaced, and provide enough tactile feedback for comfortable typing Sound is loud and quite good for a notebook. Given its mid – range space, it’s not surprising that this ultrabook is capable of handling all everyday computing jobs ,whether its Full HD video playback, apps use, basic to medium –level image editing ,office productivity and web browsing. It is possible to toggle the touchpad and touchscreen on or off from the settings menu‘s Input operation.
Its max resolution of 1366 x 768 is an ideal match to its 13.3 –inch screen; display is crisp; colours are vibrant, and its touch interface response promptly and accurately to taps and swipes. The series 5 ultra book manages an average of just over 6 hours on single change What I don’t like: On the flip side, the glossy screen tends to retain fingerprints and stains, to say nothing of how its reflectiveness affects visibility in bright environments. This is one of the heaviest ultra-books I have seen, at a hefty 1.8 Kg The mouse cursor often disappeared from the screen, freezing up the machine and rendering it impossible to carry out further tasks. I’m not sure whether this affects all pieces of this model. It was disappointing to see that there was no back lighting for the keyboard and it had just one USB 3.0 port, while the other two were still version 2.0. Price: 62,879 Rs/- Rating: 3/5
