Hi Travel Buddies,
In our search for a suitable laptop for our travel holidays, we are also attracted by the sleek and stylish design of most Ultrabooks.
Ultrabooks are thin and light, generally less than 1.4 kg with extended battery life. So is ultrabook suitable for travel? Well, we feel that ultrabooks are most suitable for those who are constantly on the go. Ultrabooks are also gaining popularity for work purposes because you can have your own portable office anytime and anywhere without compromising on performance.
Below is a list of current models of ultrabooks :
Acer: Aspire S3 Series
Asus: Zenbook and U Series
Dell: XPS 13 (arriving in Singapore soon!)
Fujitsu: Lifebook SH, PH and P Series
HP: Folio Series and Envy 14 Spectre (arriving in Singapore soon!)
Lenovo: IdeaPad U Series
Samsung: 5 & 9 Series
Sony: VAIO Z Series
Toshiba: Portege Z830 and R830 Series
You may have noticed that the current price of most ultrabooks are at least 50% higher than the mainstream laptop. We think that price may drop significantly when more new models start to launch around end of 2012. So why not get the lightest available mainstream or a good netbook instead to save up these few hundred dollars for your next dream holidays? 😛
We will most likely get a good entry level multimedia laptop for travel during IT Show 2012 next week. Meanwhile, we shall wait patiently for the next batch of good entry level MULTIMEDIA ULTRABOOK for travel.
Enjoy your shopping in IT Show 2012. 😉
