Looking to get an ultrabook for school as I need something that is lightweight and I can easily carry with my books. I really want something with a resolution higher than 1920x1080 as it would make working so much easier (being able to view multiple windows at the same time). I like to play less intensive games like Hearthstone, TF2 and Runescape, so being able to play those would
be a nice bonus. Also, I need the computer to be able to do some Photoshop and After Effects (most rendering will be done on my desktop, but I travel a lot, so I may need to do some stuff while I am away from my desktop)

I've been looking at these two ultrabooks so far:
