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.

Sony VAIO T13

The recently announced Sony VAIO T13 Ultrabook is a surprisingly attractive 13-inch contender that blends a beautiful brushed-aluminum design with a delightful range of interface ports -- Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI output, USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and VGA ports -- accessible without the need for cumbersome dongles. Under the hood, a third-generation Intel Core processor keeps thing snappy, as does the option to go for a hybrid solid-state drive (SSD) and hard disk drive (HDD) combo or SSD-only for storage. The T13 has a battery life of 7 hours and 30 minutes under default settings. An 11-inch version of the T Series Ultrabook is offered in selected regions.

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.
