Seven Scintillating Ultrabooks From CES 2012

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook

Samsung has made waves in the notebook space lately with its Series 9 ultra-thin laptop and its Chromebook offerings. Now the vendor has jumped into the Ultrabook market with its Series 5 family. The 13.3-inch Series 5 Ultrabook isn't as flashy as other Ultrabooks on this list, but it boasts a simple, extremely portable design; the Series 5 is less than 18-mm thick and weighs just over three pounds. It comes with an Intel Core i5 mobile processor, 4 GB of memory and up to 500 GB of hard drive capacity. The Series 5 also comes with Samsung's ExpressCache storage technology and FastStart feature for quicker boot and start times. The HD display also comes with Samsung's SuperBright technology for higher visual quality. The Series 5 Ultrabook will be available on January 30th, with the 13.3-inch model starting at an affordable $899.
