The T440s is a business Ultrabook that offers some unique features. The 1920×1080 matt screen with touch is rare, as is the hot-swap battery feature. A 24Wh battery lives in the unit and there’s a selection of 24Wh, 47Wh and 72Wh battery packs that can be added to that. With Haswell and the extended battery you’ve got some very impressive battery life in a 2KG package.

HP Elitebook Revolve 810 Ultrabook Convertible Hands-On. Shipping 1st March

P1130933

I had completely forgotten about the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 so when I spotted it at a Mobile World Congress pre-event this evening I was a little more excited than I should have been. Having had a good look at though it deserves some praise for a quality and stylish build, good set of ports, removable battery, TPM, VPro (I couldn’t find evidence of it though), optional digitizer and more.

Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 Hybrid Ultrabook Unboxing and Overview

P1130888P1130889

Fancy 70WH of battery in your Ultrabook? For those that don’t know how significant this is, it’s the best battery capacity we’ve seen so far in the 11.6” segment and it beats nearly all other Ultrabooks. Only the Fujisu U772 has more, but not by much. The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 doesn’t stop there. I’ve unboxed and I’m impressed at the specs, ports and capability. There’s another first here too. Matt capacative touchscreen with digitizer!

Toshiba Satellite U940 Review (U945 in the USA)

Toshiba U940 U945 (25)

When I first had hands-on with the Toshiba U940 I was a little worried that it might be built too cheaply. The casing and styling weren’t exactly top-of-the-range but it turns out that Toshiba have put together quite an honest package here. Don’t judge an Ultrabook by the cover because the Toshiba U940 has some unique features and good all-round performance. Read-on to find out more.

Toshiba Satellite U940 First Impressions, Tests, Video. Great News So Far for this Value Ultrabook

P1120938

I thought we’d be getting a Toshiba U920T Slider Touchscreen Windows 8 Ultrabook through the post this week but I was wrong. It wasn’t until the video unboxing that I found out it was actually the ‘budget’ Toshiba Satellite U940 (U945 in the USA.) I’ve left the out-take in the overview video below. What we’ve ended up with is more than just a surprise, it’s a surprise pleasure because after only half a day of testing it’s clear that this is a well balanced Ultrabook with a few almost unique and very usable features.

Thinkpad Edge E130 Misses Ultrabook Category by 5mm But Offers A Nice Trade-Off

Lenovo E130

In a search for Core 2nd and 3rd Generation Laptop under 2.5KG with hybrid HDD or SSD (that pretty much summarizes the Ultrabook category these days) I was interested to see the Lenovo Thinkpad E130 show up as the cheapest Ivy Bridge option on the market. €541. I had to double check but sure enough, there’s a hybrid SSD inside which shows what effect the Ultrabook is having on the mainstream laptop market. Why isn’t it an Ultrabook? It’s 23mm thick, 5mm over the maximum thickness for an Ultrabook. There’s a good reason for that and it might just be what you’re looking for.
