Laptops are taking over from desktop computers, and Ultrabooks are the emerging ultraportable category within laptops that's growing by leaps and bounds.
Created by Intel, the Ultrabook definition is very fluid, as there are few hard and fast rules. These thin and light laptops must use an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor and sport SSD or hybrid SSD storage. They generally have a minimum of 4GB of RAM, and tend to be clad in metal. 13in models are usually under 21mm thin while weighing under 1.4kg.
In other words, Ultrabooks are attractive, portable, premium laptops with good performance, and most of them can be had for under £1,000. But which one should you buy? We list the best Ultrabooks available to help you make your choice.
