Samsung Launches 14-Inch Ultrabook

The ramp-up toward "The Year of Too Many Ultrabooks" continues -- now Samsung is getting into the game.

On its website Monday, the South Korean electronics company unveiled the Series 5 Ultra, a 14-inch (36cm) aluminum laptop that is large enough to accommodate an optical disc drive.

It offers up to a terabyte of hard disk space, as well as solid-state drive storage options, The Verge reported.

The new model costs $1,345; Samsung is also offering a 13-inch (33cm) Series 5 Ultra for $1,300.

The laptops are launching first in South Korea, and are expected to ship in late December.

There is no word on when these will become available in the US, but with the annual Consumer Electronics Show coming up in January, more information cannot be far behind.
