Not quite the Top 10, still here are the best ultrabooks to buy in India, if it's a sleek, sexy, ultraportable laptop that you desire.
It's hard not to fall in love with the Acer Aspire S7's looks and fall in love we did. Intelligent design and hardware choices means that this device performs just as good as it looks - sporting a metal exterior and a power-packed SSD. If you're looking for a thin, light, powerful ultrabook to use on the go, in a coffee shop, or inside a boardroom, the Aspire S7 will impress every step of the way. Easily one of the best ultrabook we've reviewed this year.
Sporting a metal exterior and a thin profile, the Dell Inspiron 14 7437 weighs just 1.99 kg - which is great for a 14-inch laptop. It comes with a Core i5 chip, oodles of RAM, 500GB hard drive and onboard Intel HD 4000 graphics. If you want a 14-inch ultrabook, without breaking the bank, this one is a sound bet.
The MacBook Air is one of the best ultrabooks you'll ever buy, and probably the one that every other manufacturer wants to best with their respective ultrabook offerings. With a 13-inch screen, Core i5 chip, 4GB RAM, and a powerful 128GB SSD, this 1.5 kg industrial design wonder claims to churn out 12 hours of battery life on a single charge. And continues to up the bar for others to beat. If you have the money for it, this is simply a great ultrabook to have.
The Yoga 2 is a great convertible laptop, and a fantastic ultrabook to buy. It features a gorgeous screen, excellent ergonomics, average battery life and great build quality. And it's not short on hardware firepower, either, letting you use it as a work or home ultraportable. Highly recommended if you want a laptop within Rs.60,000. Not just any laptop, but a versatile ultrabook!
The ASUS Zenbook is also right up there among the most desirable ultrabooks to buy in the market, currently. It has a Full-HD screen, 13-inch form factor, powerful hardware, including a discrete GPU with 2GB RAM, Windows 8 Pro OS, and a multitouch screen. It's slim, trim and weighs just 1.5 kg. Great ultrabook to buy, hands down.
Sporting impressive specs - Intel Core i5 chip, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD + 24GB SSD, and 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M graphics, the HP Envy Touchsmart 14 barely qualifies as an ultrabook. Having said that, it's one of the most powerful 2-kg laptops money can buy, and definitely worth considering if you're vying for a power-packed ultrabook experience.
The ThinkPad S1 Yoga is a very good attempt to mould an iconic ultrabook laptop into a functional tablet, one that comes with our full recommendation. It�s still a bit heavy to use and operate in tablet mode only, but if you look at this primarily as an ultraportable ThinkPad with the added bonus of turning into a tablet, then it's a fantastic business-cum-pleasure ultrabooks with a unique design proposition, unlike any other in the market.
Toshiba have really created quite a stellar device in the Portege Z30T-A. It�s almost an ideal laptop because it is very light, comfortable, portable, has great battery life, a great keyboard and a lovely screen. It�s only let down by its very high asking price and somewhat bad touchpad. If you can afford it, this is the laptop you should be aiming for.
