In Pictures: 8 hot ultrabooks to watch

As the new Intel Ivy Bridge processors were unveiled so were a flurry of ultrabooks, here are eight that are worth a closer look.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Lenovo touts the 3-pound X1 Carbon as the lightest 14-inch professional Ultrabook in the world, weighing in at less than 3 pounds. Lenovo improved upon last year's X1 by making the X1 Carbon even thinner and lighter with the use of carbon fiber to add structural strength. Not many details are available at this stage, though the specifications brief from Lenovo mentions 3G connectivity, a backlit keyboard, a high-resolution 1600x900 resolution screen, and a rapid charge option that can reach 80 percent battery charge in just 30 minutes. The Lenovo X1 Carbon is expected to be available in the summer of 2012.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
