Lenovo ThinkPad X240


Lenovo ThinkPad X240Here’s a great idea for one of the best Ultrabooks of the Year – Lenovo offer the ThinkPad X240 with an optional 3-cell external battery in addition to the on board 3-cell battery, which doubles the battery life. The smaller 3-cell battery yields a still impressive 8 hours of runtime.

We also love the X240’s comfortable keyboard with elongated palm rest, durable design and wide viewing angles from the 1366 x 768 HD display. All this comes in at just 20 mm thickness and weighs less than 3 pounds – so portability is no problem.

HP EliteBook Folio 1020

HP EliteBook Folio 1020One of the thinnest and lightest Ultrabooks of the Year, the HP EliteBook 1020 is just 0.62 inches thick and weighs just 2.68 pounds, making it more slim line than both the Dell XPS 13 and the MacBook Air! So just how does it measure up against such illustrious company?

It measures up very well indeed! Inside the aluminum frame is a 12.5-inch quad HD display and Intel Core M processor. Business users will like the EliteBook’s fingerprint reader, docking port and durability, but we wish the battery lasted a little longer.

The new S7 doesn’t last as long on a charge as its predecessor and we always wish the battery lasted a little longer, but it’s still one of the most striking and portable Ultrabooks of the Year.
