The ZaReason UltraLap 430 is one of the few Linux Ultrabooks launched recently. With a wide variety of operating systems to choose from (Ubuntu variants, Debian, Fedora) ZaReason leaves no one unsatisfied. It comes with either a Core i3 or a Core i5 processor and some serious options for Storage. One can choose from 3 versions on mSATA storage (64GB, 128GB, 256GB) + either one of the two HDDs (250GB, 500GB) or one of the 3 SSD options (128GB, 256GB, 512GB) making that a perfect modular choosable Ultrabook.

|Alternatives to the ZaReason UltraLap 430|
|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]
|Dell XPS 13 Linux Developer Edition, 13.3", 1360gm|
The Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition is one of the first official Linux Ultrabooks to come to market. It packs an Intel Core i7-3667U processor in that package with 8GB of RAM. The 13" screen is protected by Gorilla Glass. Dell delivers this Ultrabook with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and offers support for it.
|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.
|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.
|ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD, 13.3", 1500gm|
The entry-level UX32VD comes with Core i5 and a 1366x768 display but it's the Core i7 version with IPS display that is getting us excited. A discreet graphics card improves gaming capability and a reasonably large battery helps drive the UX32VD for as long as possible. The Hybrid HDD includes 'Express Cache' acceleration via a 23GB SSD. Premium features like backlit keyboard and high-quality speakers add to the great value of the ASUS Zenbook UX32VD
