HP Envy 14 Spectre
At $1,400, the HP Envy 14 Spectre is technically too expensive to be an ultrabook (heck, it's more expensive than the MacBook Air!), but it delivers a lot for that price, including a (truly durable) Gorilla Glass design, a carrying case, nine hours of battery life and a two-year subscription to Norton Internet Security.
