Ultrabook comparison

See what the Acer Aspire S3, ASUS Zenbook UX31 and Toshiba Satellite Z830 look like side by side

The Toshiba may be the lightest and thinnest of these Ultrabooks, but it also has the most built in features. It has a full-sized HDMI port, VGA, three USB ports (including USB 3.0), Gigabit Ethernet, separate headphone and microphone ports and an SD card slot.

The ASUS has two USB ports (one being USB 3.0), a micro-HDMI port, a single audio port and an SD card slot. It comes with adapters for Ethernet and VGA. The Acer has the fewest ports; you only get two USB ports (no USB 3.0) and full-sized HDMI, as well as an audio port and an SD card slot.

The Toshiba Satellite Z830 (PT22LA-001001) Ultrabook costs $1399, as does the Acer Aspire S3-951, which has a similar configuration (Intel Core i5-2467m CPU and 4GB of RAM) but it comes with a 320GB hard drives instead of a 128GB solid state drive like the Toshiba. The ASUS Zenbook UX31 (CUX31E-RY010V) Ultrabook is the most expensive at $1999. It has an Intel Core i7-2677M CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive.

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.

Simon Harriott


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.
