Ultrabooks are the latest trend that has taken the technological market by storm and as is with all tech-storms, every computer company is striving to bring out the best of the best. For all those who are not clear about the concept of Ultrabooks, the idea is to have a laptop that is barely a KG in weight and yet it holds the latest processors, the latest in graphic cards, the biggest of RAMs and as of today, an SSD! If you add a top class design on top of all that, you get what only Macbook Air by Apple had to offer. Other companies are also catching up to this now which is why we bring to you the top ten Ultrabooks for 2014 in the market these days. If you are willing to make the investment, these posh looking ultrabooks cost anywhere from $600 to $1200 and above. The top ten Ultrabooks are given below.
10. Dell XPS 13
The first in the list of the best Ultrabooks is the latest release by Dell known as the XPS 13. It has an amazing display, an extra-long battery life and excellent performance than this is the Ultrabook for you. The best part is that it is very reasonably priced costing only $990. There are some downsides to the laptop however, it gets very warm and loud when working under a lot of load. Other than that, the overall built is very strong.
Next on our list is the Lenovo ThinkPad X240. If you can overlook the keys that a bit stubbly and ignore a relatively low resolution display (in comparison to other Ultrabooks) than paying $843 dollars for this Ultrabook is not a bad deal at all. The keyboard is very well built and provides a more than efficient typing experience considering the stubby keys and the overall chassis is strong too.
8. HP Spectre 13t
The next Ultrabook on our list of the top ten Ultrabooks is the HP Spectre 13t. The Ultrabook can safely boast “the unbelievable lightness of being”. As far as the screen is concerned, it is an amazing 1080p display and to top it off, it is a touch screen. It has a battery life of almost 8 hours which is longer than a lot of its competitors. On the downside, it only has two USB ports and the performance of the machine is slightly below average considering you will pay $999 for it.
If you are willing to go as high as $999 than maybe you should also consider this release by Lenovo. The Yoga 11S is a bit slow as far as performance is concerned and the display is a little dim but other than that, the design is excellent. As far as the built and portability is concerned, it has everything you would need from an Ultrabook and more.
6. Dell Inspiron 14 7000 Series
We are all aware of the fact that Dell offers and builds some of the most reliable and strongest machines out there. That is the reason that Dell is seen in most offices spaces as a durable investment. When it comes to Ultrabooks however, priced at $850, the Inspiron 14 7000 series has everything but an SSD. It is a fairly light design, slim in built and made of aluminium with a 1080p touch screen. The downsides to the design are that the bottom edges of the machine are a little too sharp making it difficult for you to hold onto them. The lack of solid state storage (SSD) is also a con as far as ultrabooks are concerned because we believe that ultrabooks without an SSD are just not ultrabooks.
