HWM (Malaysia) - - BUYERS GUIDE -

If you’ve got the money and you’re in the mar­ket for a slim, light but pow­er­ful note­book, then you’re prob­a­bly look­ing for the lat­est Ul­tra­book. Here’s a list of what we be­lieve to be some of to­day’s best and most cur­rent Ul­tra­books on the mar­ket.

Acer Aspire V5

If you’re not look­ing to break the bank, the Acer Aspire V5 is cur­rently the most af­ford­able Ul­tra­book that you can buy. It packs an In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sor, 8GB of RAM, and HDD stor­age of 750GB. It also has de­cent bat­tery life, promis­ing up to four hours of con­tin­u­ous us­age on a full charge.

Dell XPS 13

The Dell XPS 13 is a cus­tomiz­able Ul­tra­book in which users may choose be­tween an In­tel Core i5 or Core i7 pro­ces­sor, and be­tween a unit with or with­out a touch dis­play. The XPS 13 is also a rel­a­tively solid Ul­tra­book, built to be rugged, while main­tain­ing an im­pres­sively slim form fac­tor.

Mi­crosoft Sur­face 3 Pro

This Ul­tra­book-tablet hy­brid is Mi­crosoft’s re­def­i­ni­tion of what an Ul­tra­book can be. The screen size is now a 12-inch dis­play with a res­o­lu­tion of 2,160 x 1,440, a bat­tery that can last for nine hours, and a choice be­tween an In­tel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 CPU con­fig­u­ra­tion in­side it.

Ap­ple MacBook Air (13-inch)

The 13-inch MacBook Air 13-inch is one of the finest Ul­tra­books for any­body who is con­stantly on the go. It packs a 1.5GHz dual core In­tel Core i5 pro­ces­sor, 4GB of RAM, and an SSD with a ca­pac­ity of up to 256GB. The ic­ing on the cake for this MacBook Air is its bat­tery, which can last up to 12 hours on a full charge.

Gi­ga­byte AORUS X7

Hailed around the world as both the thinnest gam­ing note­book and the only gam­ing Ul­tra­book with a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graph­ics in SLI con­fig­u­ra­tion, the AORUS X7 is one of the finest gam­ing note­books that money can buy. It also has an In­tel Core i7-4860HQ pro­ces­sor and up to three slots of mSATA SSD sup­port.

MSI GE70 2PE Apache Pro

Quite pos­si­bly the thinnest gam­ing note­book un­der MSI’s lineup, the GE70 2PE Apache Pro is equipped to han­dle any game you throw at it, thanks to its 2.5GHz In­tel Core i7-4710HQ pro­ces­sor, 16GB of RAM, and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 860M graph­ics.
