Samsung Series 5

Samsung's ground-breaking Series 9 ultra-thin laptop is too expensive to be considered a true ultrabook, but its Series 5 machine fits the bill. The sleek aluminum Series 5 machine comes in two sizes: 13-inch and 14-inch displays, with the main difference being that the 14-inch contains a DVD drive and is slightly thicker, heavier and more expensive.

• Intel Core i5-2467M Processor

• 4GB DDR3 memory

• 500GB hard drive capacity, with 16GB solid-state cache
