Samsung Ultrabook specced up by retailer
Samsung's upcoming Ultrabook, the Series 5 line member NP530U3B-A01, has been specced up on a US retail site ahead of its formal launch - which will presumably take place next week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The 13.3in, 1366 x 768 machine is based on a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-2467M CPU and comes with 4GB of DDR 3 memory, a 500GB hybrid hard drive with 16GB of Flash cache, and Intel graphics.
The laptop is between 14.5 and 17.3mm thick but packs in Gigabit Ethernet, SD, HDMI and USB ports - for the latter, that's two USB 2.0 jacks and a USB 3.0 connector.
It has 2.4/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi too, and supports Intel's video-over-wireless tech, WiDi.
The price: $900. Availability? The J&R website doesn't say. ®
