Alternatives to the ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A

Alternatives to the ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A
Samsung NP350, 12.5", 1352gm
A very well rounded Ultrabook alternative. This hard-disk based laptop is available with Core i3 and Core i5 (mobile, not ultra-low voltage CPUs) and offers very similar battery life and performance figures to a standard ultrabook. The boot and program start times are slower than an Ultrabook though. Not available in all regions and pricing varies. In some areas the Core i3 version can be a real bargain.
Lenovo Thinkpad X240, 12.5", 1460gm
The Lenovo Thinkpad X240 is a fine long-duration compact traveler with build quality and great working fascia. The change to buttonless touchpad might disappoint those coming from the previous Thinkpads. Hot-swap battery with sizes up to nearly 100Wh, many security options and docking-port capable. A classic Thinkpad.
ASUS UX21, 11.6", 1102gm
First out of the block with the lightest and smallest of all the Ultrabooks is the UX21. A 45Wh battery may not bring worry-free battery life but USB3.0 and a generous 128GB SSD is included. Glossy screen may put some off but the styling and build quality seems excellent.
Acer Aspire One 756, 11.6", 1380gm
The Acer Aspire One 756 is a 11.6" Notebook with a dual-core Celeron 877 clocked at 1.4GHz. This device competes with netbooks but has much more processing power. At a little price point it is quite compelling for everyday work on the go.
Alienware M11x, 11.6", 1996gm
Acer TravelMate B113, 11.6", 1380gm
The Acer TravelMate B113 is an affordable 11.6" Laptop with decend connection options. It comes with an 4400mAh battery and 4GB of RAM. With Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n it keeps up with modern standards. There are several CPU options ranging from Pentium, over Celeron up to Core i3. Rarely seen these days is a matte screen which comes in handy for outdoor usage.
Samsung NP300 (NP300U1A-A01US), 11.6", 1288gm
Sony VAIO Z Series 2012, 13.1", 1166gm
Sonys VAIO Z Series brings in a new blazing fast Ultrabook with an external GPU combined with an BD Drive. It brings the most advanced technology out there in one device at a heavy price point of $2749.99 at its maxed out configuration. The Base configuration will cost something around 2000$
Gigabyte X11, 11.6", 973gm
Very similar to the Mouse Computers LuvBook X, the carbon-fiber build permits a very lightweight build - lighter than a netbook. Ivy Bridge makes this a 2nd-generation Ultrabook. Availability expected Q3 2012.
Acer Aspire V5 11, 11.6", 1400gm
This is the 11.6" version of the Acer Aspire V5 Series. It comes in various CPU configuartions ranging from Intel Pentium over Sandy Bridge Core-i3 up to Ivy Bridge Core-i5. It's not an Ultrabook but with its slim formfactor and its low price this piece of hardware can be quite competitive.
