Samsung joins Ultrabook race
Cues up 13.3in, 14in entrants
Samsung took the wraps off its entry into the skinny laptop space last night, revealing the 13in and 14in models in its Series 5 Ultrabook 53OU range.
Both machines are based around Intel Core i5-2567M processors running at 1.6GHz and come with 4GB of 1333MHz DDR 3 memory. The 13.3in model uses the CPU's GMA HD 3000 graphics core, while the 14in version uses an AMD Radeon HD 7550M GPU with 1GB of dedicated VRam.
Both screens have a 1366 x 768 resolution.
The 13.3in machine is the skinniest of the two: 15-18mm to the bigger model's 21mm. It comes with a 128GB SSD or a 500GB HDD, and no optical drive. The 14-incher has a multi-format DVD writer and up to 1TB of hard drive capacity.
Both have 2x2 2.4/5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0, Ethernet, HDMI, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0.
There's no word on pricing or availability, just yet. ®
