Coming in 14″ (CT14) and 15.6″ (CT15) flavors, the Vizio Thin + Light is based on Ivy Bridge. Both feature the exact same ports, specs, and features. A whole range of Intel Ivy Bridge ULV processors is available: Core i3-3217U (1.8GHz), i5-3317U (1.7GHz), or i7-3517U (1.9GHz). All models are equipped with 4GB of RAM and integrated HD 4000 graphics. The screens are the only thing to set the two sizes apart. It’s good to see that an HDTV manufacturer isn’t sending this out with low res screens; the 14″ is equipped with a 1600×900 display while the 15.6″ comes with a full 1920×1080 display. We’ve confirmed that the 1080p screen is IPS, but the 1600×900 screen doesn’t appear to be

|Dell Latitude E7440, 14.0", 1630gm||Datasheet|
|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.
|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]
|Samsung NP350, 12.5", 1352gm|
A very well rounded Ultrabook alternative. This hard-disk based laptop is available with Core i3 and Core i5 (mobile, not ultra-low voltage CPUs) and offers very similar battery life and performance figures to a standard ultrabook. The boot and program start times are slower than an Ultrabook though. Not available in all regions and pricing varies. In some areas the Core i3 version can be a real bargain.
|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.
|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.
|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.
|Dell Inspiron 14Z, 14.0", 2370gm|
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.
