The ultrabook category has clearly taken the market by storm – initially started as a standard defined by Intel as an answer to the popular Macbook Air, most PC manufacturers were very quick to build their own versions. The idea is simple – very light, subnotebook class machines, with high end specifications, which cost a little more than standard notebooks. Most of these ultrabooks are now on their second generations, so they are better than ever.
But the problem with a standard like the “Ultrabook” is that manufacturers need to think of ways to differentiate their own products. A few ingredients are found everywhere – low power Intel processors, speedy solid state storage, and very thin bodies. Very quickly these machines all look like copies of each other. As you will see below, Samsung bends some of these rules for the better, with a very unique offering in the Series 5 Ultra Touch.
Samsung’s latest 13 inch ultrabook is a great example of how manufacturers are quickly reinventing their ultrabook offerings.
