Looking very focused toward that cinema experience but also something that will be useful for productivity. Side-by-side windows would work well in this resolution. The weight seems acceptable for the size and as with other Toshiba Ultrabooks, the port selection is good.

|Dell XPS 13, 13.3", 1400gm|
Available as an updated Ivy Bridge build now the XPS 13 is a quality bit of kit. Unfortunately it only has a 720P HD screen rather than 1600x900 or FullHD so that might put some people off. We'd love to see an update of this with a 1600x900 touchscreen.
|Dell Latitude E7440, 14.0", 1630gm||Datasheet|
|Acer Aspire S3, 13.3", 1350gm|
The Acer S3 was always the honest, budget option in the market. Now updated with Windows 8 (from Oct 26th 2012) it still offers good value for money. CPU starts with Core i3 Sandy Bridge, the older generation, and other specs remain unchanged. [Oct 2012]
|HP Envy 4, 14.0", 1750gm|
The HP Envy 4t is available in Intel and AMD configurations and known as a 'sleekbook,' not an Ultrabook. There are discreet graphics GPU options and the CPU range includes both 2nd-gen and 3rd-gen CPU options. No SSD available at present [June 3rd 2012]
|Toshiba Portege Z830, 13.3", 1120gm|
The Toshiba Satellite/Portege Z830/Z835 is turning out to be one of the best specified 13" Ultrabooks so far. It has a leading 1.1KG weight, aluminium casing and a great range of ports and features. The features match its business-like looks. Wi-Di is included for those looking at wireless 1080p to TVs. The price is competitive. Watch out for: Noisy fan in quiet environments, slightly 'squishy' keyboard. Z835 is the US-only Core i3 model.
|HP EliteBook Folio 9470m, 14.0", 1630gm|
The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m is a business focused Ultrabook with up to 16GB of RAM and either 500GB of HDD or 256GB SSD. It features 3 USB 3.0 Ports, VGA and a DisplayPort 1.1a The primary 4-cell 52 WHr battery can be extended with another 6-cell Slice battery with 60 WHr capacity.
|Lenovo Thinkpad S531, 15.6", 2100gm|
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. The Lenovo Thinkpad S531 could be just what you’re looking for. A 9hr, 15” laptop with the Thinkpad KWM fascia and Ultrabook advantage. 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.
|ASUS UX31, 13.3", 1297gm|
The UX31 (and smaller UX21) were the first true Ultrabooks to become available and ASUS have included a good set of specifications that include USB3, a high brightness 1600x900 screen and 128GB of fast SSD. We've reviewed the UX31 (and UX21) and it's an amazing bit of kit but you'll need to watch out for the keyboard which didn't work-out for us. Our review link is above.
|Lenovo IdeaPad U410, 14.0", 1800gm|
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.
|Toshiba Portege Z930, 13.3", 1120gm|
The upgrade to the Z830 takes the same lightweight chassis and adds the 3rd generation Core processor and a faster SSD. This will be available in various version around the world with up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD and UMTS/WiMax options. The screen resolution remains the same which is dissapointing but given that the Z830 was an excelent Ultrabook, the Z930 will still be able to compete.
