Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook NP540U3C-A01

We have just taken a look at the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook (NP540U3C-A01) in our latest review.  This is a mainstream ultrabook that mixes moderate horsepower with a touchscreen for a nice user experience.  There are faster units out there, but for the price this unit can hold its own.  Take a look at our review and see how this Core i5, 8GB DDR3, 128GB SSD unit holds up under testing and teardown.

As far as serviceability goes, the Samsung Series 5 is one of the easier notebooks or Ultrabooks I've ever taken apart. Most companies go out of their way to make servicing Ultrabooks tough so that when then break (hopefully many years down the road), you have to take them back to the manufacturer for service. This is not the case for Samsung with this model, chances are good if your local repair shop can get the part, they can easily repair this unit for you.

Please post your comments, thoughts and feedback below.

Sorry but this laptop is long gone by now so I can't give you too much advice, but if memory serves me correct it was pretty easy.


Here's a link for general keyboard replacement, I believe this model was the same, just a couple screws to remove on the back and then the keyboard comes out, I don't recall it being very difficult at all.

Hope that helps!
