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.

HP Envy Spectre XT

Riding on the coattails of the HP Spectre, the HP Envy Spectre XT ultrabook is a slimmed-down version that comes with a smaller 13-inch LED backlit display and is powered by a third-generation Intel processor. This combination has helped reduce its weight to just 3.07 pounds. On the storage front, the Spectre XT comes with a 128GB or 256GB SSD and Intel Rapid Start Technology, and is loaded with a performance-tuned software image that HP claims gives it a very fast boot and wake times. The HP Envy Spectre XT is currently available for preorder.

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.
