It's an interesting 2-in-1 with a nice keyboard and good total battery life but this business focused 'Pro' version is quite expensive.
Medion Akoya P2212T, 840gm
This model is being offered around the world for a very acceptable price. The best variant, with the N2920 and 4GB RAM) should satisfy most consumer computing needs and the full HD display is a real bonus. The tablet is a little heavy but as a computing package there's a lot of value in this 2-in-1

Weighing 1.05KG the LG TabBook Ultra Z160 is one of the lightest one-piece convertibles on the market and powerful enough to be a comfortable desktop. Its 12 hours battery life, full Windows 8 and port selection should make it very flexible for on-the-go usage. The screen is 11.6-inch which means the keyboard could be quite comfortable compared to some 10-inch keyboard dock offerings. 1366768 at this size seems a sensible choice. On board is 2GB RAM and 64GB eMMC storage. A full USB and HDMI port will make it even more interesting.

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.

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).
Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx, 635gm
The Lenovo IdeaTab Lynx K3011 is a dockable Ultrabook based on the Intel Clovertrail Platform. With it's 1.8GHz Atom processor it should last for about 8 hours in tablet only mode and up to 16hrs in Laptop mode. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 8.
Panasonic AX, 1140gm
This Panasonic convertible is available in Japan and offers some of the best we've seen in terms of specs, weight, size and features. This is an 11.6" Full SSD convertible in 1.1KG! Vpro models available. Sensor pack included. Unfortunately the screen is only 1366x768 but on an 11.6" screen, that's acceptable for most.
Lenovo Thinkpad Helix, 785gm
The Lenovo Thinkpad Helix offers an advanced tablet/laptop configuration with battery capacity up to an impressive 70Wh with the clamshell dock. The weight, however, is high at 1.7KG, much more than other 11.6" ultrabooks that go down to 1KG. SSD options, CPU options (including VPro support) and memory up to 8GB give the business user and consumer a wide choice of configurations. We think the Lenovo Helix is going to be very popular here on Ultrabooknews but pricing will be high. Starting price: around $1500.
Samsung Chromebook, 1100gm
The all new Samsung Chromebook (Exynos 5) is a new Chromebook running on an ARM Cortex A15 platform. It comes at a sub 250$ price point to the US. Europe seems to pass on that device.

Gigabyte U2142, 1390gm

ASUS Vivobook S200 X202, 1300gm
The ASUS S200E-CT182H is a good starting point for everyone to enter the Touch Ultrabook category because it hits the market at a budget pricing. IN the USA it's available as the Vivobook X202 In terms of connection it offers a good range of ports, including VGA, HDMI, 2 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 as well as an SDHC card reader.

The Samsung Series 7 slate is renamed to the Ativ SmartPC 700T in line with European naming conventions.

A full HD screen and S-Pen input makes the Samsung ATIV SmartPC 700T a leading tablet/ultrabook in terms of usage scenarios.
ASUS Taichi 21, 1224gm
The ASUS Taichi 21 is an extremely well-built Ultrabook convertible that, at 1,25KG can be used for some short-term tablet scenarios. Battery life is relatively short (about 3.5hrs) but the package is extremely mobile and flexible. Excellent speaker quality.

FullHD screen sensor pack, NFC, digitiser, backlit keyboard, SATA 6Gb/s-connected SSD, removable battery, Gigabit LAN and more. An optical trackpad helps to keep overall dimensions down to a minimum.

Acer Aspire One 756, 1380gm
The Acer Aspire One 756 is a 11.6" Notebook with a dual-core Celeron 877 clocked at 1.4GHz. This device competes with netbooks but has much more processing power. At a little price point it is quite compelling for everyday work on the go.
Acer Aspire V5 11, 1400gm
This is the 11.6" version of the Acer Aspire V5 Series. It comes in various CPU configuartions ranging from Intel Pentium over Sandy Bridge Core-i3 up to Ivy Bridge Core-i5. It's not an Ultrabook but with its slim formfactor and its low price this piece of hardware can be quite competitive.

The S20 is a convertible Ultrabook which uses a sliding design, much like the Asus Eee Pad Slider and long forgotten (and never sold) Samsung Slider 7. The MSI S20 is equipped with Windows 8 which Microsoft has retooled for touch input with the Metro interface (pictured above). The S20 is exciting because it will be one of the first touchscreen convertible Ultrabooks with both Ivy Bridge and Windows 8 a combination that could actually represent a good touchscreen computing experience in the world of mainstream PCs for the first time.
ASUS Tablet 810
The ASUS Tablet 810 is a new convertible tablet/notebook running Windows 8. It is powered by an Intel Atom processor which will most likely be a Medfield Z2460.

Acer Aspire S7 11", 1220gm
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.
Gigabyte X11, 973gm
Very similar to the Mouse Computers LuvBook X, the carbon-fiber build permits a very lightweight build - lighter than a netbook. Ivy Bridge makes this a 2nd-generation Ultrabook. Availability expected Q3 2012.
ASUS Zenbook Prime UX21A, 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.
HP EliteBook 2170p, 1310gm
The HP EliteBook 2170p is an Ultrabook competitor with up to 16GB of RAM. As this device is focused for the business market one can get an SED HDD (Self Encrypting Drive) or SSD. We have to wait for a price to see how well this device will sell. With its 26.5mm thinkness it's a bit thicker than most Ultrabooks but still thinner than most Laptops.
Mouse Computers LuvBook X, 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 its 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.
Acer Aspire One 725, 1200gm

With its AMD C-60 fusion CPU and its built in AMD Radeon HD 6290 it is powerful enough for Full-HD media consumption on the go. At a price point of 359 this device is a versatile and powerful Netbook. Especially the 3G option might be interesting for some people.
Sony T11, 1420gm
The Sony T11 is a budget Ultrabook at a price point of 699 starting to sell at the end of May 2012. It is based on the Sandy Bridge Platform which is unsurprisingly at that price point. The Sony T11 has some nice features like a 500GB Hybrid HDD, Gigabit ethernet and Bluetooth 4.0 + HS.

It can be upgraded with an SSD. There are many versions of this Netbook available, most noticeable its the CPU which either can be AMD Fusion based or Intel Core i3 Based.
Acer Aspire One 722, 1450gm
The Acer Aspire One 722 is a rather standard mid-range netbook featuring an AMD C-60 APU. With its APU (combination of CPU and GPU) and it's 2GB of RAM it does of course support flawless 1080p video playback. For 350 this 11.6" device is a good starting point for someone who wants a recent netbook.
ASUS Eee PC 1225C, 1440gm
The ASUS Eee PC 1225C comes with all features of the Eee PC 1225B but is powered by Intel's CedarTrail Platform. It runs with an Intel Atom N2600 clocked at 1.6 GHz.

Samsung NP300, 1288gm
Lenovo X121e, 1550gm
HP Pavillion DM1, 1601gm
Samsung XE700, 860gm
The EX700 includes a little bit of everything. Good processing power, a USB2.0 port, digitiser, Wi-Di capability, digitiser (for pen) and capacatice layer (for finger) a docking port and keyboard, fast SSD disk and all in a lightweight shell but it's missing things that laptops offer like full-size SD card slots, a USB 3.0 bus and a VGA port. As a mobile PC or a hot-desking PC, the XE700 looks like it can take on a lot of working scenarios though and with Windows 8 it's going to look even better. An impressive full-range tablet PC.
Samsung 900X1B, 1060gm
Although the 900X1A base version doesn't include the 'Turbo Boost' feature of the Core i5 versions, the platform performs well. Largely due to the fast SSD. For those comparing to the Asus UX21, you'll be interested in the backlit keyboard, matt screen, micro SD slot and competetive price. The base versions of the Core i5 and Core i3 versions only come with 2GB RAM and 64GB SSD but 4GB versions are available. [Dec 1 2011]
Gigabyte Booktop T1125P
ASUS UX21, 1102gm
First out of the block with the lightest and smallest of all the Ultrabooks is the UX21. A 45Wh battery may not bring worry-free battery life but USB3.0 and a generous 128GB SSD is included. Glossy screen may put some off but the styling and build quality seems excellent.
Acer Chromia 700, 1380gm
Lenovo Ideapad S205, 1480gm
Apple MacBook Air 11.6, 1080gm
The entry-level MacBook Air now offers a huge boost in processing and video decoding and encoding power over previous models along with a Thunderbolt port for extremely high speed data transfer. At 1080gm it's one of the lightest Core i5/i7 systems too. There's a 13" version also available which comes with SD card slot.
Alienware M11x, 1996gm
Dell Inspiron M101z, 1560gm
Acer Aspire One 721, 1400gm
Acer Aspire 1551, 1400gm
ExoPC Slate, 950gm
EvoPC have developed overlay software for Windows 7 but we haven't had a chance to check it out. THe Pinetrail platform + 2GB RAM should help WIndows 7 along. We'd like to see some sort of docking solution. Uses the same hardware as the WeTab.
Samsung X125, 1510gm
Acer Aspire 1825PT, 780gm
ICD Gemini
The Tegra 2 platform used in this is a dual-core Cortex A9 which provides significantly more processing power than a Cortex A8 (E.g. HTC Desire, iPad, Nexus One, Archos 5) meaning web browsing should be a lot faster with the ability to handle multiple concurrent tasks. The critical Google Marketplace is an 'option' which we understand to mean 'waiting for carrier deal.' Autumn release will depend on carrier deals and, if history is anything to go by, will delay the product. Weight unknown but we expect 1 to 1.2 KG based on sizing and huge 41whr battery. Battery life of 6hrs seems real based on screen size, battery capacity and processing platform.
WeTab WeTab, 800gm
As time goes on, this Meego build is going to get better and we look forward to the addition of the AppUp store. The hardware platform is relatively old fashioned though so the WeTab products could start to shine more when the second generation is released.
