Paul, how about a head-to-head between the 14" Ivy Bridge sporting a Core i5 3210M and the Series 5 535 with an A 10-4655M APU described above ? I find the TN panels with 1366 x 768 resolution on these notebooks disappointing, especially coming from a leader in screen innovation like Samsung, but hopefully in the near future, manufacturers will deem it worth their while to provide users with better screens....
What is the battery life on these?
"...sports an AMD quad-core A6-4455M APU..."
The A6-4455M is a dual-core processor. The A10-4655m is a quad-core.
See chart here: http://www.amd.com/us/products/notebook/apu/mainstream/Pages/mainstream.aspx#7
(Samsung's product sheet for the 13-inch model incorrectly lists the A6-4455M as "quad-core." Somebody in Samsung's marketing department messed up.)
NotRappaport, the fault - if, indeed, it is a fault - is not that of HH, but rather that of Samsung, as can be seen from the specs the firm itself is announcing for the Series 5 535 13.3” Notebook (http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/laptops/NP535U3C-A01US-specs)....
Wuchengt, I did indeed see the chart - but as I pointed out above, the fault is not that of the article author, but of Samsung, for releasing contradictory information....
I did not assign fault in my post above but since you brought it up, I wonder: Whose fault is it that a couple days after being notified of a factual error in a story, the author and his editor(s) still haven't bothered to correct it?

This guys post was a partial copy of your post, just a cut and paste of your link. The guy is a SPAMMER (or a Bot) because he's hiding links in his posts. This is something that we're beginning to see a lot of as moderators. I just removed the hidden link from his post and normally would have deleted it entirely.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Thanks, realneil - good that you chaps (and ladies, in the event) are keeping an eye out for this sort of thing ! One minor point - the cut -and-paste was not from any of my posts, but rather from NotRappaport's first post. With respect to the question of contradictory messages from Samsung - as per NotRappaport's link and that provided in my reply above - when I now access the latter, I find that it has been corrected and the A6-4455M found on the Series 5 535 13.3” Notebook is indeed confirmed to be a dual-core processor. Thus, like NotRappaport, I submit that the first period in the second paragraph of the above article, which begins «The Samsung Series 5 535 13.3-inch (1366x768 resolution) laptop sports an AMD quad-core A6-4455M APU clocked at 2.1GHz ...» should be corrected to reflect this fact....

OK, Got that now.

I can moderate user posts, but not correct the articles, I think an Admin is required for that.
«I can moderate user posts, but not correct the articles, I think an Admin is required for that.» I have no problem with that, realneil, but perhaps you could send a note upstairs ? Correcting errors (even if they are not the fault of the author, as in this case), goes a long way to preserving credibility....
mhenriday:perhaps you could send a note upstairs ?
I did that just now.
Fixed this folks. Thanks for your patience.
