The Samsung Series 5 530U (4B-A01) Ultrabook is more of a thin and light 14in ultraportable and Macbook Pro rival than a competitor to the 13in Ultrabooks already on the market - but either way it’s a sleek, attractive yet affordable laptop. A decent screen and the best audio we’ve yet heard from an Ultrabook combine with good usability and connectivity to make up for its average battery life. We’re especially excited that Samsung is introducing dedicated Radeon graphics into the Ultrabook market with its 530U4B range, though this specific model sticks with Intel’s integrated solution. For those who want an optical drive, it is also the only current choice.
