Showcasing a 13.3-inch HD SuperBright 10-finger multi-touchscreen and powerful 3rd generation Intel Core processor, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch exploits the touch-centric Windows 8 interface for effortless intuitive use.
“The Series 5 ULTRA Touch will meet all the demands from our customers offering better intuitive use combined with powerful performance and plenty of storage,” said Denzil D'Souza, Business Head for Notebooks at Samsung Gulf Electronics. “With the introduction of Windows 8, there will be shift in the way consumers use notebook PC’s, placing a larger emphasis on touch functionality as well as maintaining the traditional input methods of a keyboard and a mouse.”
Intuitive Touchscreen for Better User Experience
With the upcoming new Windows 8 operating system, demand in touch-enabled notebook PC devices is expected to increase. To meet such demands, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch has been equipped with a 10-finger multi-touchscreen – a technological leap in interactivity, surpassing traditional two-finger multi-touch by providing full touch control using all ten fingers on a clamshell notebook PC. Its enhanced sensitivity enables users to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications or perform complicated content editing. Pinch to zoom on content or rotate images, and scroll through pages with complete ease using 10 multi-touch functions.
Powerful Hardware Upgrades
Available with a 13.3-inch display, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch comes with up to 3rd generation Intel Core i3_3217U processor, 4GB memory, 500GB storage and 24GB Express Cache system, ensuring a flawless user experience to satisfy customers’ needs in any scenario. The Series 5 ULTRA Touch offers 10-15% more efficient CPU processing, plus two times faster media processing and 3D rendering. Fast Boot in less than 20 seconds, wake-up in two seconds and faster web-browsing are just some of many examples the ULTRA Touch can deliver.
ULTRA Storage and Mobility
Lack of storage or connection can really hamper work efficiency and productivity. The Samsung Notebook Series 5 ULTRA Touch’s storage of up to 500GB provides over two times more content capacity of other UltrabookTM models. It also includes a full-size HDMI port, one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, 3-in-1 multi SD card slot, Ethernet and 1.3M webcam.
In the past, carrying a chunky notebook PC was a big burden, especially for professionals constantly on the move. With a lightweight of 1.64kg and being 16.9-19.9mm thin, the Series 5 ULTRA Touch is incredibly
portable, given its touch capabilities and full notebook PC functionality.
To ensure consistent connection, the new device delivers up to 6.7 hours of power on a single charge so customers can stay focused on their movie, listening to music or working on-the-go, without needing to find a power outlet. In addition, Samsung’s BatterLife Plus technology extends the overall battery life of up to 1,500 cycles / 3 years.
