Though users are likely to do comparisons between that 2.5-pound,13inch, Samsung is not stabilizing the Series 9 laptops as Ultrabooks.But still, for something that is not Ultrabook, the others Series 9 certainly look the part: both pack Core i5 processors, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSDs, 6hour battery backup and backlit keyboards — Ultrabook-like specs if ever we have heard them. Even the Fifteen-inch model is missing an optical drive, and isn’t much larger than the last-gen Series 9.
