The Acer Aspire S3 is one of the thinnest ultrabooks, but if design is your thing you might be let down because this one is mostly plastic (with a magnesium lid). However, the Aspire S3 is super-thin with a sweet price of $899. You'll also get more storage with its 320GB hard drive; the addition of 20GB of flash memory will speed up boot times.
