In Pictures: 7 new Windows 8 Ultrabooks

The introduction of MIcrosoft Windows 8 has spawned a variety of new and exciting devices. Here are 7 Ultrabooks that have been developed especially for the new operating system.

Acer Aspire S7

At 2.3 lb., the Acer Aspire S7 is half an inch thick, has a chic aluminum case and should be a great travel companion. The system sports an 11.6-in, multi-touch screen that can show 1920 x 1080 resolution and resists wobbling when you tap on a tile or swipe your finger across the screen. Best yet, it folds all the way flat for slipping under a monitor stand. Model 191-6640, which is pictured here, comes with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor and sells for $1,119.99. Acer will also offer similar S7 systems with 13.3-in. displays.

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.
