Alternatives to the Apple MacBook Air 11.6
|Alternatives to the Apple MacBook Air 11.6|
|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.
|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.
|Samsung NP300 (NP300U1A-A01US), 11.6", 1288gm||Datasheet|
|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.
|Alienware M11x, 11.6", 1996gm||Datasheet|
|Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E130, 11.6", 1518gm|
With the ThinkPad Edge 130, Lenovo released a decent piece of hardware for a reasonable price. It comes with different CPU options: Intel Pentium 977 being the lower end and Intel Core i3 being the higher end option. With 4GB of RAM and 320GB of Storage (HDD) it serves well enough for most purposes we encounter. One special thing we like is the upgradability that comes with this laptop. One can change storage, add RAM to the second memory bank or replace broken parts with ease. What's fascinating about this model is the 63Wh battery Lenovo chose to deliver as a standard power souce at that low price point.
|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.
|ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A, 11.6", 1100gm|
The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A is an Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook with an incredible 1920x1080 11.6" IPS display. It offers 3xUSB 3.0, 1 microHDMI and 1 miniVGA port. With its 1.1kg it is a lightweight and yet powerful device. Pricing is still unavailable and it will most likely start selling in June.
|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 $2749.99 at its maxed out configuration. The Base configuration will cost something around 2000$
|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.
