2. Apple MacBook Air
Many tech websites have found that Windows runs better on a Mac than on a PC, due to the optimized drivers that need worry only about Apple's hardware. No Ultrabook matches the power and light weight of a MacBook Air, and you can set an Air to boot into Windows 7 directly so you don’t have to worry about supporting OS X.
A 13-inch model with a 512GB SSD and 1.7GHz Core i7 is cheaper than HP's similar Elitebook. Included are one Thunderbolt port, two USB 3 combo ports, and a MicroSD slot; an Ethernet adapter costs $29 extra, as does a VGA, HDMI, or DVI video adapter.
