If you’re using your laptop primarily to ‘get things done’ then you’ll have a couple of things at the top of your wish list. Large screen, perfect working fascia and battery life; You’ll probably also be prepared to take a hit on style or even weight for the right product.

One thing to be aware of though is that this Ultrabook is based on older standards (Ivy Bridge). Because it’s got a 62.8Wh module inside, battery life isn’t going to be a problem.

Targeted at the lower-cost Ultrabook segment the Lenovo Ideapad U410 offers the latest Intel 'Ivy Bridge' but also adds the Nvidia GeForce 610M for additional graphics capability. A relatively low-resolution screen my put some off but the pricing looks very competitive. Lenovo's quality could also win some customers for the U410 Ultrabook.

A new Ultrabook has quietly gone live within Dell’s world. The Dell Inspiron 14Z Ultrabook is showing in Dell stores across Australia and Asia and is a little bit confusing. It’s at the 21mm limit for 14” Ultrabooks and it weighs a relatively heavy, no, very heavy, 2.37KG. Base pricing is coming in at the equivalent of about 1000 US dollars depending on the country. The Dell Inspiron 14Z is built on Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 configuration. 8GB of RAM and a 500GB drive long with the DVD drive hint at work-horse scenarios.
