Don't-Miss Ultrabook Stories

Lenovo X1 Carbon 2014

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon review: Slightly overdone, but plenty tasty

Whether you're a business user or a consumer, this is the best Ultrabook so far.

Toshiba Kirabook

Toshiba Kirabook review: Rich and thin, but still short of awesome

Most of the original Kirabook's shortcomings have been addressed, but Toshiba's competitors haven't stood still.

Acer TravelMate Pro

Acer Travelmate Pro (TMP645-MG-9419) review: This mild-mannered case conceals a powerful laptop

This business-oriented portable delivers on speed and battery life, but its support options are staid by corporate standards.

Dell XPS 13

Dell XPS 13 review: A small, sexy, and durable Ultrabook

This third iteration of Dell's tiny laptop is definitely the best.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch review: An enterprise-class notebook to fall in love with

This quietly elegant executive notebook is small, slim, sturdy, and a dream to use. If you take frequent short trips (battery life is its biggest shortcoming) and work a lot en route, you’ll want this computer.

HP Spectre 13

HP Spectre 13 review: an exceedingly well-executed return to the basics

Think all trackpads are the same? Run your fingers over HP’s new Control Zone.

Sony VAIO Tap 11

Sony VAIO Tap 11 Ultrabook review: Sleek and sexy, but far too slippery

This super-svelte Ultrabook/tablet hybrid comes with sharp looks, impressive specs—and a host of design and usability shortcomings.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro review: Great performance and a better-than-Retina display

The Yoga 2 Pro laptop/tablet hybrid is a superior experience in either orientation, and its ultrahigh-resolution display is awesome. But the dual design forced compromises with the keyboard.

Dell XPS 12 Ultrabook review: Haswell refresh adds performance

Dell's cleverly designed laptop/tablet improves with new CPUs. It runs faster and lasts longer, but is still premium priced.

5 of the best Haswell-powered notebooks you can buy today

Tablets are great for what they are. When you need real computational power on the go, however, only a full-fledged laptop will do the job.

Acer Aspire V7

Acer Aspire V7 review: This Ultrabook can play a decent game or two

Don’t let the slim design fool you. This machine packs both a powerful CPU and a discrete graphics processor.

Sony VAIO Pro 13

Sony VAIO Pro 13 review: This audacious Ultrabook is guaranteed to get you noticed

Sony’s freakishly thin notebook is good for everything but games.

Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch review: A daily driver with all-day battery life

This surprisingly inexpensive Ultrabook is a terrific value.

HP Envy TouchSmart 15t review: When gaming is a priority, but cash flow is tight

This notebook lets you game on the go without paying through the nose.

Acer Aspire M5 review: A big display, terrific battery life, and a moderate price tag

We dig the 15.6-inch display and 7-plus hours of battery life, but the 1366 by 768 resolution is a letdown.
