In Pictures: The best new Ultrabooks

A wave of Ultrabooks -- light, thin laptops that have more capabilities and fewer compromises than ever -- is hitting the market. Here's a look at some of the current crop

Toshiba Satellite U845-S406

The Toshiba Satellite U845-S406 is decently priced (at $880) and still packs quite a punch. Its stock speed of 1.7GHz can rev up to 2.6GHz with Intel’s maximum Turbo Frequency feature. While that won’t impress power-PC enthusiasts, the Ivy Bridge dual-core CPU will handle most stressful tasks with ease. The pleasantly smooth multitouch touchpad is quick and responsive, but the keyboard’s keys are stiff. The laptop can fit easily in a typical backpack, yet sports a 14-inch LED-backlit display. Like most Ultrabooks, it lacks an optical drive, but it should serve well for business users on the go.

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.

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.
