5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung NP530U4B, 28 Sep 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Series 5 530U4B 14 inch Ultrabook - Silver (Intel Core i3 2367M 1.40 GHz, 6Gb RAM, 500Gb HDD, DVD SuperMulti DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
This is nicely built and feels solid. It has a slim profile despite including a DVD drive. Comes with a restore DVD which is helpful, most others expect you to make your own. It can also restore from a HD partition so the DVD is only needed for complete drive failure.
Some of the additional Samsung software is a bit unnecessary (helps with settings and launching programs), I suppose some will find it helpful, but I spent time removing it.
But the best bit is the fast boot technology, helped by a 16Gb solid state drive which makes a big difference to booting and an even bigger difference to wake-up from sleep. This works and is almost as good as wake-up on an iPad.
The power brick is reasonably compact so this makes it a good laptop to carry around, although it is not light (hence feels solid). Keyboard has a soft but precise feel and screen, with a matt surface, is sharp and reasonably bright.
As you can probably tell, I'm a satisfied customer after 1 month of use and can recommend this if you get it at the right price.

I can't say for sure that the wifi is 100% flawless, but I've not noticed anything amiss. I've tried it around the house, up and down, through brick walls and it seems to be as good as any other device.

Could you please tell me whether or not it has a removable battery? I feel this may be a silly question but I thought I'd ask!
Thank you

I have the Samsung Series 5 NP530U4C model which is similar and it does not have removable battery. It has HDMI port. Best if you phone the Samsung Customer Support Centre Tel 01932 454358 or 0330 726 0001. They can answer any questions you may have.
