Samsung shows off Series 5 Windows 8 hybrid concept at Computex

Samsung joined the Windows 8 party at Computex in Taiwan and showed a number of Windows 8 devices including the Series 5 UltraBooks which come in varied form factors.  The most distinct of these new Series 5 UltraBooks was the Hybrid which came with a 13-inch display with resolutions of 1366×768 pixels, but had a swivel screen similar to the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga seen at CES.

Samsung has not divulged any information regarding RAM or processors, though it will be hard to fathom these devices shipping without Intel Ivy Bridge chips.  A standard variant of the Series 5 was also showcased with similar specs, expect for the fact that the swivel screen had been swapped in with a more standard Laptop panel albeit one with touch capabilities.
