Aside from the 2012 Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook, Sammy unveiled another new laptop for the Philippines – the Samsung Series 5 Slim.
This, however, isn’t an Ultrabook, but that’s just mainly because it doesn’t run on an Intel processor. Ultrabook, just in case you still didn’t know, is a term created by Intel for Intel-powered ultra-slim laptops with a specific feature-set. So any laptop, regardless of how thin it is, as long as it doesn’t come with Intel inside, can’t be called an Ultrabook.
That said, I sure wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of people called the Samsung Series 5 Slim an Ultrabook, given how thin this ultra-portable is.
And its specs aren’t that bad either. This 13.3-inch laptop features a 2.1GHz AMD Trinity A6 4455M dual-core processor supported by 4GB of RAM, Radeon HD 7500G for graphics, and a traditional HDD in lieu of the standard SSD found on Ultrabooks.
But the real winner here is its price- Php29,900!
Yep, this uber-thin laptop is retailing for less than Php30K, making it one of the most affordable ultra-slim laptops in the market today. And yes, it comes with Windows 7 preinstalled, not just DOS.
Personally, I’ve got a bias for Intel. So, no, I’m not the least bit interested in this one. But that’s just me.
If you’re not brand conscious and want a sexy laptop that’s easy to tote around as well as on the pocket, at its ridiculously low price, it’s hard not to consider the Samsung Series 5 Slim notebook.
