Samsung 530U4B-A03 Ultrabook, 2 year warranty – £649.95

You have seen the adverts, Ultrabooks are rightfully all the rage thanks to superb design, loads of power and slimline designs which allow for go anywhere access and this Samsung 530U4B-A03 Ultrabook is one of the cheapest, but has all the benefits of the more expensive models.

How does the Samsung 530U4B-A03 differ from the £1000+ ultrabooks?

The main reason for the price difference is the lack of a SSD. However some people prefer the larger HDD capacity you get on a normal drive. This Samsung ultrabook has a huge 500GB, compared to some only having 128GB via an SSD.

How does it match up to other ultrabooks?

Samsung are on to a winner here as it is over £300 cheaper than most ultrabooks, but on paper does not lack in features, or crucially in this sector, design. It looks stunning, and it is feature rich with USB3.0, HDMI, 6GB of RAM and a Core i3 Processor which is more than enough speed for most people. Plus unusually for an ultrabook you get a CD/DVD drive. Nice niche carved out here by Samsung. Also if you buy from John Lewis you get a free two year warranty which is not standard in the UK.
