Intel is responsible for categorizing whether a device would be called an ‘ultrabook’ depending on its given and required specifications including the thinness and availability of Solid State Disks in a notebook. Of course, a laptop should be powered by an Intel CPU first before confirming about its ultrabook legalities. So how would you call a notebook PC that has changed its chip from the Intel processor to the AMD part and rather used a hard drive instead of a Solid State Disk?
Very recently when Samsung has introduced its Series 5 notebook PCs. The one’s NP530 ultrabook running on Intel CPU specifically the Ivy Bridge processor, while the [easyazon-link asin=”B0082PZ0Q4″ locale=”us”]Series 5 NP535[/easyazon-link] runs on an AMD chip. The non-ultrabook model NP535 features 13.3 inches panel display with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. It boasts a 1.7 GHz AMD A6-445M Trinity processor with a TDP of around 17 W. Furthermore, the Samsung Series 5 NP535 equips with a 4 GB of DDR3 RAM plus a 500 GB of hard drive.
To note, this laptop sports an AMD Radeon HD 7500G graphics, integrated stereo speakers, 1 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports and a memory card reader. There are connectivity options as well including the 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet and built-in Bluetooth 4.0. Users would also have the chance to view video clips and images on a larger TV panel through its HDMI output. However, when wanting to use a VGA plug, an adapter would be needed. The Samsung Series 5 NP535 has dimensions of 12.4” x 8.6” x 0.7” weighing around 3.4 pounds. It is as well equipped with a 45 Whr battery.
The good news is that the Samsung Series 5 NP535 is a hundred dollar lower than the Samsung Series 5 NP530 on Ivy Bridge chip’s price tag. The NP535’s at $698.99 while the NP530 is valued at &799.99. Samsung also offers models with faster AMD processors plus a larger and sturdier 14-inch screen for added bucks making the price at $849.99.
