[CES 2012] Beyond Thin and Light: Series 5 ULTRA Finally Unleashed
Samsung Electronics today introduced the new Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA, representing more than just thin & light, packing ultra performance beyond expectations.
Unleash “Most Secret” Features
Available in 13” and 14”, the Series 5 ULTRA reveals its performance through an Intel® Core™ i5-2467M processor, up to 8GB memory, ExpressCache™ system by Diskeeper and AMD Radeon™ HD graphics card. As a result, the Series 5 ULTRA is able to fast boot in just 20 seconds, wake up in 2 seconds, whilst web browsing is twice as fast as the previous generation notebook PCs.
Performance would be nothing without enough space to store your data. Due to the development of digital image devices and various media platforms, files are getting larger every day, increasing the need for bigger user storage. Despite the recent trend of cloud storage, local storage is still preferred among users on a daily basis. Not to compromise these needs the Series 5 ULTRA 14” offers up to 1TB ultra storage capacity ensuring that users never need to carry a peripheral storage device with them.
The performance has been further enhanced by the extended battery life. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA delivers up to 6.4 hours of battery life on a single charge, to make sure users enjoy the ultra features throughout the day. The Samsung Battery Life Plus is a true anti-aging battery technology which keeps 80% of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles / 3 years. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than other notebooks.
ULTRA of your Choice
To meet the concept of being the true companion of consumers, the Samsung Series 5 ULTRA will be offered in 13” and 14”.
To ensure ease-of-use while on the move, the Series 5 ULTRA 13” is just 14~17.6mm thin and 1.38kg light. The Intel® Core™ i5 processor, up to 8GB memory, up to 500GB storage and 16GB iSSD with ExpressCache™ ensures that mobility is not compromised. Consumers can also choose from a 128GB SSD or 258GB SSD as their preferred storage. To offer maximum connection to other devices, the 13 inch model also carries full-size HDMI port along with one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and webcam.
The 14” model equipped with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, up to 8GB memory and 16GB iSSD with ExpressCache™ system offers exceptional performance. For larger storage and heightened visual experience, the Series 5 ULTRA 14” embraces up to 1TB storage as well as an AMD Radeon™ HD7550M 1GB graphics card. An integrated Optical Disc Drive is also installed for maximum convenience. In terms of connectivity, the 14” model offers full-size HDMI, VGA, two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and webcam. All the above features are packed into a 20.9mm thin and 1.84kg light chassis.
