With the ThinkPad Edge 130, Lenovo released a decent piece of hardware for a reasonable price. It comes with different CPU options: Intel Pentium 977 being the lower end and Intel Core i3 being the higher end option. With 4GB of RAM and 320GB of Storage (HDD) it serves well enough for most purposes we encounter. One special thing we like is the upgradability that comes with this laptop. One can change storage, add RAM to the second memory bank or replace broken parts with ease. What's fascinating about this model is the 63Wh battery Lenovo chose to deliver as a standard power souce at that low price point.

LG XNote P220 (SE35K SE50K), 12.5", 1300gm
The thin bezel on the LG P220 is going to attract a lot of people. 12.5" screen in a 11.6" frame is usable and stylish. At 21mm deep this sits just outside the target thickness for an Ultrabook. The LG Xnote P220 launches firs in Korea with 2 variants. The 320GB HDD version and a 128 SSD version. It is unknown if the 320HDD comes with SSD cache to speed up boot time. If not, this isn't an Ultrabook. Certainly none of the marketing materials so far have mentioned the 'Ultrabook.'
