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.

|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
|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.
|Fujitsu Lifebook UH90, 14.0", 1387gm|
The UH90′s centerpiece of course is its screen, with its heady resolution of 3200 x 1800 providing a pixel density of 262ppi but Fujitsu also has another trick up their sleeves by managing to squeeze the 14″ IGZO touchscreen display into a chassis that is about the same as for a 13″ model. Fujitsu also adds what it calls “Super Glide Coating” to the display for a better touch experience with Windows 8. Along with the display enhancements the UH90 also has a 1.6GHz Core i5-4200U Haswell processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics and a 500Gb hybrid drive with solid state cache, and with a thickness of only 15.5mm Fujitsu claims this is the thinnest Ultrabook available.
|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.
|Acer Aspire S7 (Haswell), 13.3", 1300gm|
The Acer Aspire S7 just got refreshed - it's now based on Intel's Haswell architecture. It packs in several goodies for your pleasures. Starting with the optional 2560x1440 pixel display, a backlit keyboard, RAID-0 SSDs for blazing fast speed and Intel's WiDi technology, this Ultrabook is a serious option out there. With 180° of movability, the display - a 10-finger touchscreen by the way - gives you the option to lay the display flat onto a surface and play or watch something together. Battery life is proclaimed to be around 7hrs. For crystal clear voice Acer added a microphone array to their Ultrabook.
|Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch (540U3C), 13.3", 1635gm|
Centrino 2 band, 2 channel WiFi. No keyboard backlight. Disk/ram access panel. 1366x768 touchscreen.

This is the refreshed version of the 2012 Acer Aspire S3 - now build upon Intel's Haswell platform. It comes with 1TB of HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 735M graphics, a 1080p IPS display with 170 degrees of viewability and includes Intel's Wireless Display aswell.
|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.
|Samsung Series 7 Ultra Touch (740U3E), 13.3", 1460gm|
The Samsung Series 7 Ultra runs Windows 8 and this model comes with a multitouch display capable of 10-point touch. The 13.3-inch display is full HD (1920×1080) and has a brightness of 350 nits. The touchscreen model weighs 1.65kg but offers a good 57Wh of battery capacity. This Ultrabook will hit the mark for many and we expect it to be a good seller in 2013
