Samsung Series 5 Ultra, Samsung’s First Ultrabook Offering

Joining the Ultrabook band wagon, Samsung the other day launched not one, but two variants of their first ever Ultrabook, the Samsung Series 5 Ultra ““ one with a 13-inch display and the other, a 14-incher.

The 13″ version of the Samsung Series 5 Ultra has an Intel Core i5 2467M Processor, 4GB DDR3 Memory and 500 GB Storage while the 14″ version is powered by an Intel Core i7 2637M processor, 6GB DDR3 Memory, 1TB HD and 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7550M Graphics.


Both variants feature a hybrid storage, mixing the hard disk drive with 16GB SSD powered with Samsung ExpressCache, a caching technology that significantly reduces boot times and speeds up application launches and access to data, thus increasing the overall performance of the system. The Samsung Series 5 Ultra ExpressCache promises 20-second boot-ups, wakes from sleep in 2 seconds and loads frequently viewed web pages 2x faster than your average notebook.

The Samsung Series 5 High Definition LCD screen also offers 40% brightness than many traditional PCs, attributed to its Superbright technology that features brightness of 300 nits. The two models also has HDMI, VGA, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card and Ethernet slots and also a webcam.

Being an Ultrabook, it is certain that the Samsung Series 5 Ultra is thin, lightweight and easy to carry. One thing that makes this more interesting and different from the arrays of Ultrabooks available in the market is its built-in Optical Disk Drive, though only the Core i7 version packs this feature.

The price offering of the 13″ version is also appealing at Php 44,900, making the Samsung Series 5 Ultra 13″ one of the best priced Core i5 Ultrabook out there. Meanwhile, the 14″ version is priced at Php 59,900.

    pwede na yung 14″ version nito kaysa sa Zenbook. Mas mabilis at worth sa presyo. =D
