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.

Samsung Series 9 (2012)

The new Samsung Series 9 with a third-generation Intel Core processor was first unveiled last month, and has since gone on sale in countries such as Singapore. The 2012 version of the Series 9 uses an aluminum chassis and looks substantially more stylish, with a slimness of an incredibly 12.9mm and a weight under 2.6 pounds. Its price tag means that you won't find Samsung calling it an Ultrabook, but its form factor and low-voltage Intel processor leaves little room for doubt. The 2012 Samsung Series 9 is also available in 15-inch versions, which is offered with the option of a cheaper magnesium chassis or a more pricey aluminum one.

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.
