Samsung has introduced the new Samsung Ultrabook Series 5 ULTRA Touch featuring Windows 8.
Packed with a 13.3-inch HD SuperBright 10-finger multi-touchscreen and powerful 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch allows for effortless, intuitive use of the Windows 8 interface.
Intuitive Touchscreen for Better User Experience
With the upcoming Windows 8 operating system, demand for touch-enabled notebook PC devices is expected to increase. To meet this demand, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch has been equipped with a 10-finger multi-touchscreen – a technological leap in interactivity, surpassing traditional two-finger multi-touch by providing full touch control using all ten fingers on a clamshell notebook PC.
Its enhanced sensitivity enables users to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications or perform complicated content editing. Pinch to zoom on content or rotate images, and scroll through pages with ease using 10 multi-touch functions.
Powerful Hardware Upgrades
Available in 13.3-inch, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch comes with up to 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, 8GB memory, 500GB storage and 24GB ExpressCache™ system, ensuring the excellent user experience that customers desire. 10~15% more efficient CPU processing, plus 2x faster media processing and 3D rendering, Fast Boot in less than 20 seconds, wake-up in two seconds and faster web-browsing are just some of many examples the Series 5 ULTRA Touch can deliver.
ULTRA Storage and Mobility
Lack of storage or connection can really hamper work efficiency and productivity. The Samsung Ultrabook Series 5 ULTRA Touch’s storage of up to 500GB provides over two times more content capacity of many other UltrabookTM models. It also includes a full-size HDMI port, one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, 3-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and 1.3M HD webcam.
Carrying a chunky notebook PC is always a big burden, especially for professionals constantly on the move. At just 16.9~19.9mm thin and 1.69kg light, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch is amazingly portable, with touch capabilities and full notebook PC functionality.
To ensure consistent connection, the new device delivers up to 6.7 hours of power on a single charge so customers can stay focused on their movie or work. In addition, Samsung’s BatteryLife Plus technology extends the overall battery life of up to 1,500 cycles / 3 years.
Aluminum and Fiberglass for Durability and Style
The new Series 5 ULTRA Touch unites professional style and durability. The sophisticatedly simple and refined exterior is a cool metallic brushed aluminum, while the underside consists of fiberglass, delivering the rigidity and lightweight customers ask for, and protecting the PC from bumps and knocks.
Pricing and Availability
The new Samsung Series 5 ULTRA Touch will be available in Singapore from 26 October 2012 at an RRP of $1,549 in Titan Silver.
