|Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch (SSD) Overview||01/03/13|
|Samsung updates the Series 5 with a touchscreen. The original Series 5 was a good performing Ultrabook with a good keyboard so there's no reason to think this will be any different. Launch price is a little high but this is a full SSD version where the standard Series 5 has a hybrid HDD. Lower prices could make this one of the more desirable touchsreen laptops.|

|Toshiba Kirabook 13, 13.3", 1347gm|
The Toshiba Kirabook 13 has a pressed magnesium chassis which gives it it's premium look. With 8GB of RAM and an Intel Core i7 4500U with 1.8Ghz it sports some serious hardware. 256GB of SSD storage should both be sufficient and fast for quick bootups and resume from standby. Toshiba claims a battery life of up to 9.16h, which should be enough for everyday usage scenarios. What we like is the multitouch screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.
|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
|Acer Aspire S3 (2014), 13.3", 1630gm|
So the Acer Aspire S3 got a refresh. Design changes over the original S3 include a flat-folding screen and a more rounded style. A backlit keyboard, FullHD IPS touchscreen and Gorilla glass screen protection, 1TB ultra-thin (7.2mm) drive and WiDi support (as all new Ultrabooks) are in the specifications (see below for full specs). Highlight of the package is an Nvidia GeForce GT 735M graphics which should give you playable access to almost any game on the market.
|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.
|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.
|Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus, 13.3", 1300gm|
The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus is a Haswell based Ultrabook with a gorgeous 3200x1800 pixels 13" display offering a multitouch layer. It runs on a Core i5 4200U at 1.6GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.6GHz. Note that you need an adapter which comes with the package for ethernet. Unfortunately the VGA adapter is only optional.
|ASUS Zenbook Infinity (UX301LA), 13.3", 1400gm|
At 15.5mm with a touchscreen, the ASUS Zenbook Infinity is one amazingly thin Ultrabook. Gorilla Glass lid and touchscreen, backlit keyboard, 2560x1440 resolution, 4th-Gen Intel Core and more although at this stage the full specifications are not known. The ASUS Zenbook Infinity is being launched at Computex and although it wasn not mentioned in the ASUS press conference, a preview model was shown behind glass.
|Fujitsu LifeBook U904, 14.0", 1389gm||Datasheet|
|HP Envy TouchSmart 14, 14.0", 2010gm|
The HP TouchSmart 14 is an Ultrabook based on Intel's Haswell platform. What makes this stand above the crowd is it's impressive 3200x1800 pixels display. At 14" this will be the highest pixel density there is right now. There will be options for a 1366x768 or 1600x900 pixel display.
