Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch vs Lenovo IdeaPad U310 vs Apple MacBook Air:Which is better?

Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch                                                                                                                     The 13-inch Samsung Series 5 535U3C-A01 is a great little Ultrabook competitor that manages to keep its price low thanks to AMD innards. The 13.3-inch screen is multi-touch, so you can browse Windows 8 and play touch games with it. The 500GB hard drive offers plenty of storage space, while the 24GB SSD enables it to boot quickly. The Intel Core i3 processor and 6GB of RAM give enough headroom to run demanding apps and there's a good array of connections, including a USB 3.0 port and Ethernet socket. On paper, the Series 5 Ultra Touch is the complete Windows 8 laptop package. With a slim, sturdy design and a powerful mainstream CPU, the touch-enabled Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch is a great sub-$900 13-inch Windows 8 machine.
But, The Series 5 Ultra Touch feels like it could be a world-class laptop a lot of the time, Good thing it has a touch screen, because the touch pad is a bit jumpy. Performance is slower than that of similar Core i5 laptops.
The bottom line: Samsung's midprice Series 5 UltraTouch looks and feels like a more expensive machine, but keeps it simple by skipping the complex hybrid mechanics of so many new Windows 8 systems.                                                                                                                                                                                        Specifications

But, The components and performance are average, the screen is thoroughly middling, the battery life is a bit low, it's a bit heavy and thick. The thicker, heavier design weighs a bit more than last year's U300s, and there aren't any SSD-only upgrade options.
The bottom line:  It's not any worse than its low-priced Ultrabook peers, and the keyboard is good for those who want to do a lot of typing on a small machine. The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 is an all-around decent ultrabook that's perfectly priced for back-to-school shoppers, but there are plenty of alternatives with nearly identically prices and features.

The multitouch trackpad is still the industry's best, and even better, the 13-inch MacBook Air now starts at $100 less than the previous model.                                       The new Haswell processors use very little power, giving the 2013 13-inch MacBook Air and absolutely stunning battery life. In our test, in which we streamed the live BBC News channel feed on iPlayer over a wireless network, the laptop lasted for nine hours. That's significantly better than the 11-inch MacBook Air's 7 hours 15 minutes, and a substantial improvement over the 2012 MacBook Air's 5.5 hours.
Since switching to solid state storage off the shelf with the late 2010 update, the MacBook Air has been known for its good battery life. But with the Haswell processors in place, it's absolutely stunning. At last, you can use your notebook all day long on a single charge.
But, Newer features such as touch screens and higher-resolution displays are still missing. The ultrabook competition is catching up, in terms of design.
The bottom line: Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Specifications
