  • If you can get over the Dell XPS 12's screen acrobatics, this convertible ultrabook is a good way to get both tablet and laptop functionality in one unit.


  • Truly, there is not much to criticize about Dell's latest XPS 12. It is a top-tier piece of technology that excels in nearly every department, from its exquisite construction to its clever, versatile design. It maintains one of the best keyboards on any Ultrabook to date, coupled with a comfortable touchpad, accurate 10-point multi-touch screen, and a reasonable weight that - while still a bit heavy by tablet standards - communicates quality. And it's incredibly stylish, to boot.


  • With a fourth-generation Intel processor and a higher-capacity battery, Dell's updated XPS 12 is an excellent 12-inch tablet-laptop hybrid that can go the distance.


  • The MSI GS70 Stealth (GS70 2OD-002US) is a solid ultraportable gaming laptop, but even with good performance and battery life, it's a close race with the competition.


  • The GS70 Stealth is an attractive and powerful device for gaming enthusiasts who want to use the 17.3-inch notebook on the road. The build quality is good, the design is appealing and the weight is not much higher than a standard multimedia notebook. All of this is combined with a high-contrast and bright display that is well suited for gaming and movie playback.

    Even though the 3D performance of the GS70 Stealth cannot always keep up with the competition, it is still very good if you consider the size of the notebook.


  • The MSI GS70 crams a fourth-gen Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GTX graphics and a 17.3-inch 1080p display into an extremely slim chassis.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 13 shows that you can make laptops lighter and thinner when you use a fourth-generation Intel Core processor. It's very good, though Sony really needs a grand slam to distance itself from similar rivals.


  • Light, thin and elegant. Samsung Series 9, Apple MacBook Air 13, Acer Aspire S7 391 and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon - all devices make compromises to meet these requirements. The Vaio 13 Pro is the lightest Ultrabook (1,066 grams/~2.4 pounds) within this competition; the just 10 mm (0.4 inches) thick base results in a reduced keyboard quality and problems with the torsion resistance. The case material of carbon fiber is unbreakable but still flexible. Some aluminum unibodies of the rivals are stiffer but also heavier.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 13 delivers Intel Haswell power, long battery life and one of the world's fastest SSD's in the lightest 13-inch touch Ultrabook.


  • If you're looking for a svelte laptop to show off, yet still be able to do real work in Windows 8, the Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 is the ultrabook you want at the top of the list. It's the current pinnacle of the ultrabook trend and shows the brilliance that the PC makers can return under Intel's increasingly stringent standards for ultrabooks.


  • The Acer Aspire S7 is a slim, stylish Ultrabook that offers strong performance, very long battery life and a gorgeous, full-1080p touch screen.

    The second time's a charm for Acer: the company's refreshed S7 Ultrabook addresses all the things we disliked about the original. Just be prepared to pay a premium over competing laptops.


  • The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S is a versatile touch-enabled convertible laptop/tablet combo. We applaud Lenovo for its innovation, but internal components and battery life in particular leave us asking for more.


  • The Yoga 11S is essentially a blend of the Yoga 11 and Yoga 13; it's an attempt to leverage the benefits of both models while keeping the affiliated limitations to a minimum. In some ways, it succeeds: with a bright IPS screen, sturdy design, excellent performance, and a responsive, accurate touchscreen, it's got a lot to like.

    However, like its predecessors, its utility boils down to the user's goals.


  • Lenovo adds an Intel Core i5 processor and full Windows 8 to the ber-flexible Yoga 11S, transforming it into a legitimate Ultrabook.
