Ultrabook. Ultra-touch. Ultra-sales? The Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch is the very same Series 5 Ultrabook everybody in the technology world has come to love aesthetically with a couple of major revisions technically, something Samsung will hope drives this laptop to success.
Samsung have officially launched their Series 5 Ultra Touch Ultrabook to the world, with prices set at $809.99 (around £500 or AU$789) for the Core i3 version and prices set at $859.99 (around £534 or AU$837) for the Core i5 version. The main features for Samsung’s Series 5 Ultra Touch Ultrabook include a hybrid 500GB hard drive, an industry standard 4GB of RAM, a middling 1366 x 768 display (but with great viewing angles, as with all Sammy screens’!), and of course it will ship with Windows 8 out of the box to make full use of that touch-screen.
Note: Prices above in GBP may not be correct. By the time products get put on shelves in the UK, retail prices have a knack for going up fairly significantly. We can only hope, however, that the above is true. Are we dreaming?
As with prior Series 5 Ultrabooks, this latest variation to the product line features a familiar design with a matte silver palm rest and surround, with the same all familiar silver laptop lid and bezel around the display.
Release date wise you are looking at October 26th for this laptop, however when specific retailers will have it in stock is another question.
