ASUS Vivobook S400CA (5)

Overview

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.

Acer Aspire S7 13", 13.3", 1300gm
The Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabooks were launched Taipei at one of the first press events getting a head-start on some of the other Ultrabooks at Computex 2012. The 11.6 and 13.3″ Ultrabooks offer premium features and long battery life. Available later in the year with HD screens with touch and Windows 8. The battery life claims are very interesting. Up to 12hrs claimed for the 13.3" model is much more than we've seen on similar 1st-gen Ultrabooks

Sony VAIO Pro 13, 13.3", 1060gm
The Sony VAIO Pro comes in 6 different versions, four 13" versions varying by RAM and SSD size - and two 11.6" versions. At only 1060g the 13" version is incredibly light and easy to take with. Sony's newest Triluminos-Display technology combined with a Full HD resolution make this display very color-true and will most probably be loved by Photographers or Videoproducers. One nifty little thing is the AC adapter, as it comes with a built-in Ethernet to Wifi Router which can be detached to give room to the hidden USB-Port for charging other devices.

Fujitsu Lifebook UH90, 14.0", 1387gm
The UH90′s centerpiece of course is its screen, with its heady resolution of 3200 x 1800 providing a pixel density of 262ppi but Fujitsu also has another trick up their sleeves by managing to squeeze the 14″ IGZO touchscreen display into a chassis that is about the same as for a 13″ model. Fujitsu also adds what it calls “Super Glide Coating” to the display for a better touch experience with Windows 8. Along with the display enhancements the UH90 also has a 1.6GHz Core i5-4200U Haswell processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics and a 500Gb hybrid drive with solid state cache, and with a thickness of only 15.5mm Fujitsu claims this is the thinnest Ultrabook available.

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.
