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

HP Envy 4-1030us

The HP Envy 4 is aptly named—this Ultrabook’s premium design and subtle pop of color should make it the envy of ultraportables everywhere. But don’t expect too much in graphics performance or gaming (the Envy 4 has no discrete graphics card). It features a flat, plateau-like brushed aluminum cover and a sexy red undercarriage. Plus, it’s a solid performer and has excellent speakers. The keyboard is attractive, but typing accurately can be hard. The touchpad supports multitouch gestures, which are fairly smooth. Other pluses are its good performance scores and excellent speakers. The Envy 4 also features built-in Wi-Fi and Blue­tooth 4.0.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
