Samsung has refreshed its Series 5 laptops with the new Ivy Bridge processors. But it seems that's not the only change the company has planned for its popular line of laptops.
The South Korean electronics giant also introduced two new AMD-based models on its official Web site, the NP535U3C-A01US and NP535U4C-A01US. They run on the latest Trinity chips recently unveiled by AMD. The former runs on AMD Quad-Core A6-4455M 2.1Ghz chip while the latter runs on AMD Quad-Core A10-4655M chip.
The specs packed in these laptops pretty much match with their Intel-based cousins. Samsung Series 5 535 Notebook featuring 13.3-inch display is packed with Windows 7. All the necessary connectivity ports like USB port, memory card reader are included. Other notable features of this notebook is its thin and light design, 500GB hard drive, AMD Radeon HD 7500G graphics, 1.3 HD Web camera and 4W Stereo speaker. This sleek laptop is available from $699.99.
The 14-inch version offers some more features, including an optical drive and 750GB hard drive. The other major difference between these two versions is the 13.3-inch version features an AMD Radeon HD 7500G graphics chip while the 14-incher offers integrated graphics. The 14-inch model retails for $849.99.
The price difference between the Intel version and the AMD-based version is notable. The 13.3-inch Samsung Series 5 NP530U3C-A01US packed with Intel Core i5-3317U 1.7Ghz Processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000 are available from $799.99 while the AMD-based Series 5 NP535 is available for $699.99 and up. However, these AMD-based devices cannot be called ultrabooks as only Intel-based products get that name. All these models are available online now.
