We love Ultrabooks but we also love the competition from other parts of the notebook industry. Lower prices, faster processors, bigger batteries, discreet graphics and other features give the consumer a choice and challenge the designers of future Ultrabooks. There are some devices that are closer (MacBook Air, Series 9) than others (DM1, SH771) but we can’t ignore them.
To that end we’ve implemented changes in the database and added a bunch of Ultrabook alternatives. There’s no fixed range of specifications for an alternative but we’ve added what we think are the main contenders today. If you want to propose another alternative in the same.class of processing and with a weight of under 4lb / 1.75kg make your case in the comments below.?
You’ll find the list of Ultrabook alternatives, including specifications, comments and more information, here.
All Ultrabooks and alternatives are also now grouped and listed on the standard database list.
