|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.
|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.
|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.
|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.
