Buy a £599 Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook, get a Galaxy Tab tablet for free

You can grab a Series 5 Ultrabook from Samsung (via Currys) for as little as £599 and while that’s a decent deal, it’s made even sweeter by the fact that the company is giving away a free tablet worth at least £118. That’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 2.0 and you can read its review here.

The NP530U3C is a very decent mainstream Ultrabook, one of a new wave that comes with a hybrid storage subsystem consisting of a small amount of flash memory (24GB) and a massive hard disk drive (500GB).

The rest of the specification is rather common. It runs on Windows 8 and is powered by an Intel Core i3-3217U processor with two cores clocked at 1.8GHz and 3MB L3 cache, based on the Ivy Bridge architecture.

It comes with 6GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000 subsystem, a 13.3in 1,366x768 resolution, a card reader, two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 one, GbE, Wi-Fi, VGA/HDMI, a 4-cell 45Whr battery that features an anti-ageing technology and can power the Ultrabook for up to seven hours, all packed in a device that’s only 1.52Kg heavy.

The free tab offer is valid until the end of February 2013 and the NP530U3C is the only Series 5 Ultrabook that is eligible.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
