We’ve never seen an Ultrabook with these specs before. The Asus NX500 Ultrabook was announced yesterday and it proves how far Ultrabook specification can be pushed. The NX500 is targeted squarely at creators and gamers and is one of the most impressive-looking Ultrabooks we’ve ever seen. No, this is not ultra-light, unless you want these specifications in a Windows laptop, and then it is!

Alternatives to the ASUS NX500

Alternatives to the ASUS NX500
ASUS VivoBook S400, 14.1", 1995gm
As one of the cheapest touch-enabled Ultrabooks, the Vivobook S400 should get a large audience although a deeper dive on the specs reveals a few points of note. The weight is mainstream rather than class-leading and the spinning hybrid drive won't bring you the speeds you see on SSD-based devices.
ASUS VivoBook V551, 15.6", 2400gm
The ASUS VivoBook V551 is a 15.6" Ultrabook based on Intel's new Haswell platform. It's processor is a Core i7 with 1.8Ghz. 8GB of RAM together with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M make up a good performance for gaming. We are curious to see how long it's 3-cell 65W 4500mAh battery combined with Haswell's powermanagement will keep this thing up and running. The 15.6" display comes at a rather underwhelming 1366x768 resolution.
Asus S500CA, 15.6", 2100gm
Available with Core i5 and Core i7. Model number S500CA-CJ005H used for the specifications above.
Dell Inspiron 15z, 15.6", 2160gm
The Dell Inspiron 15z is a 15.6" Ultrabook which comes with a weight of 2.16kg and several different configurations ranging from core i3 to i7 CPU, 4-8GB of RAM, 500GB HDD + 32GB mSATA SSD or 128-256GB SSD. There is also a version with NVIDIA Geforce GT630M 2GB GPU. This model however comes with an Intel HD 4000.
HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook, 15.6", 2164gm
This is the new HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook 15t-4000. It is a touch-enabled Ultrabook featuring a powerful dual-core Intel Core i7-3517U with 1.9GHz with turboboost up to 3GHz and 4 Threats. The 15" IPS Display comes with a Full HD resolution (1920x1080). On the hardware side there is not much to choose from HP, however one can choose from 4 different Storage configurations (500GB HDD 7200 or 5400 RPM, 128GB SSD or 256GB SSD). With Windows 8 installed this could offer some nice touch-experience.
Toshiba Satellite U50t, 15.0", 2400gm
Asus ZenBook UX501, 15.6", 2270gm
For a 15.6 inch laptop it's light at 2.27kg for the 6 cell battery model and thin at 21.3mm, however one of the accessories might be a trolley, so for a desktop replacement it certainly fits the bill. It does have a monster 4K/UHD 3840x2160 pixel IGZO IPS touchscreen display (282ppi) powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M with 2G or 4G GDDR5 VRAM and a Core i7 4720 processor that starts at 2.6Ghz and turbos up to 3.6Ghz. From the pictures it looks typically Zenbook-tastic.
