Samsung Series 5 ULTRA Finally Unleashed
Samsung’s first Ultrabook going beyond thin and light
Auckland, 17 April 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, introduces the new Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA, representing more than just thin and light, packing exceptional performance.
Revealing many outstanding features, the Samsung Series 5 ULTRA is powered by a second-generation Intel Core i5 processor. Combined with ExpressCache system by Diskeeper and a powerful AMD Radeon HD graphics card, it delivers an incredible experience packed in a thin and light form factor.
Richard Burton, IT Sales Manager at Samsung New Zealand, says, “Based on in-depth market research and consumer surveys, we’ve developed a new type of Samsung Ultrabook.
“These days, consumers demand more than just a thin and light product. They also want top performance and, as digital files become larger, excellent storage too.. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA will answer these needs.
Available in 13.3” and 14”, the Series 5 ULTRA reveals its performance through an Intel Core i5-2467M processor,up to 8GB memory, ExpressCache system by Diskeeper and AMD Radeon HD graphics card. As a result, the Series 5 ULTRA is able to fast boot in just 20 seconds and wake up in two seconds.
Performance would be nothing without lots of space to store data. Due to the development of digital imaging devices and various media platforms, files seem to be getting larger every day, increasing the need for lots of user storage. Despite the recent trend of cloud storage, local storage is still preferred among users on a daily basis. The Series 5 ULTRA 14” offers up to 1TB ultra storage capacity, minimising the need for users to carry a peripheral storage device with them.
The performance has been further enhanced by the extended battery life. The Samsung Series 5 ULTRA delivers up to 6.4 hours of battery life on a single charge, to make sure users enjoy the ultra features throughout the day. The Samsung Battery Life Plus is a true anti-aging battery technology which keeps 80 per cent of the cell’s original capacity in a life cycle lasting up to 1,500 charging cycles / three years. This ensures that the battery can last up to five times longer than other notebooks.
