Choosing an Ultrabook


May 18, 2013

I'm looking to get an Ultrabook for University. After doing a bit of research I've narrowed it down to these 6. Seeing as I already have a powerful Desktop that I use for gaming, I only need the Ultrabook for browsing/writing papers etc. Anyways, these are the Ultrabooks I narrowed it down to. I'm having a hard time deciding between them though, therefore I turned to Tom's HW to hopefully give me some useful input

So, if you have any opinions about these Ultrabooks and if you have suggestions for other Ultrabooks in the same pricerange and size (~700USD ~13"), feel free to share them.

1) Acer Aspire S3-371
2) Lenovo IdeaPad S300
3) Sony VAIO Fit14
4) Toshiba Satellite P845T-10G
5) ASUS VivoBook S300-C1004H4
6) Lenovo IdeaPad U310 4375

Thanks in advance!

ps. I live in Denmark, which is why the prices might be on the higher end of the scale compared to prices from other parts of the world.

I'm also in the market for an ultrabook around the same price range, albeit I'd like a 15 inch. You might look into doing upgrades yourself as well. I was going to pick up an Asus ZenBook, but realized I could get a better machine for the same price if I bought the cheaper S56CA and 4gb ram and a solid state separately.
