Acer C7 Chromebook
|The all new Acer C7 Chromebook is a very interesting low cost Chromebook coming at a prices lower than the Samsung ARM-based Chromebook. With its Intel Celeron 867 Processor it boosts the Chromebook to a whole new level. While the ARM Chromebook tries to set new standards for batterylife, this Chromebook comes with an average batterylife of about 3.5hrs. Additionally to the 320GB HDD it comes with 100GB Cloud Storage from Google. Nothing special portwise but it delivers the ports one would expect from a laptop (except the lacking SD-Card slot).|

Acer C7 Chromebook Alternatives
|Sony VAIO Pro 11, 11.6", 870gm|
The Sony VAIO Pro comes in 6 different versions, four 13" versions varying by RAM and SSD size - and two 11.6" versions. At only 1060g the 13" version is incredibly light and easy to take with. Sony's newest Triluminos-Display technology combined with a Full HD resolution make this display very color-true and will most probably be loved by Photographers or Videoproducers. One nifty little thing is the AC adapter, as it comes with a built-in Ethernet to Wifi Router which can be detached to give room to the hidden USB-Port for charging other devices.
|Acer Aspire S7 11", 11.6", 1100gm|
The Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabooks were launched Taipei at one of the first press events getting a head-start on some of the other Ultrabooks at Computex 2012. The 11.6 and 13.3″ Ultrabooks offer premium features and long battery life. Available later in the year with HD screens with touch and Windows 8. The battery life claims are very interesting. Up to 9hrs claimed for the 11.6" model is much more than we've seen on similar 1st-gen Ultrabooks.
|ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A, 11.6", 1100gm|
The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A is an Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook with an incredible 1920x1080 11.6" IPS display. It offers 3xUSB 3.0, 1 microHDMI and 1 miniVGA port. With its 1.1kg it is a lightweight and yet powerful device. Pricing is still unavailable and it will most likely start selling in June.
|Samsung Chromebook, 11.6", 1100gm|
The all new Samsung Chromebook (Exynos 5) is a new Chromebook running on an ARM Cortex A15 platform. It comes at a sub 250$ price point to the US. Europe seems to pass on that device. With a 3G option and a very attractive 1.1kg weight this chromebook can be a companion for travelling around the globe. Google and Samsung are claiming a battery life of up to 6.3 hours.
|Sony VAIO Z Series 2012, 13.1", 1166gm|
Sonys VAIO Z Series brings in a new blazing fast Ultrabook with an external GPU combined with an BD Drive. It brings the most advanced technology out there in one device at a heavy price point of $2749.99 at its maxed out configuration. The Base configuration will cost something around 2000$
|ASUS Vivo Tab Smart, 10.6", 580gm|
The ASUS Vivo Tab SMart is a smaller, lower cost version of the Vivo Tab. Still a full WIndows 8 tablet running on Atom, it has a 10" screen and no digitiser support.
|Mouse Computers LuvBook X, 11.6", 985gm|
Releasing a 1st-generation Ultrabook while the excitement builds to 2nd-gen Ultrabooks based on Ivy Bridge may, at first, seem a stupid move but when it’s a unique product like the new LuvBook X from Mouse Computers in Japan, it may not make much difference. The LuvBook X is going to be the second 11.6” Ultrabook on the market, the first with a carbon-fiber body and the first to break 1KG. It's battery is supposed to run up to 5.5 hours.
