I wanted a 13.3" ultrabook with Windows 7, and this fitted the bill.

First of all the hybrid drive really does work and the computer boots in under five seconds (once you have enabled "fast boot"). Samsung have built their own hybrid by placing 6GB of dedicated RAM in parallel with a conventional 500 GB drive, which is not partitioned into useless "program" and "data" partitions. The fast boot is important because it means one minds much less if your computer shuts down, and this extends the effective battery life.


Aluminium case looks great. Weight of 1.5kg is good although not as light as a real ultrabook. The screen (1366 x 768) is bright and has a matte, non-reflective finish (unlike the Acer Aspire S3, Asus Zenbook UX31 or Dell XPS13) so is easy to use outdoors. However, the contrast ratio is not great; if you want something especially for watching films there are other choices which may suit you better.


The aluminium top / fibreglass bottom is strong and steady but the hinge has a bit of flex and does not fold back as far as some competitors. I am tall and found myself wanting to fold it back a bit further than it could go.
All the ports are very firm; I actually struggled to unplug the network cable. This firmness is of a piece with the keyboard and a different approach to Asus, who keep everything much looser.


Very good, much better than most ultrabooks. 1 x USB3, 2 x USB2. There is an HDMI port but no VGA port (because of height). Samsung don't supply an HDMI/VGA adaptor cable as they did with the earlier 530U3B. The LAN port folds out, be careful with this as rough handling could break it.


The travel is not deep but it requires a firm pressure.
