Ultrabooks are the best kind of laptop money can buy. Why? Because they’re slim, light and wake from sleep almost instantly. You should also expect long battery life, which is great for everyone from students to road warriors. There’s a lot of models from which to choose at different prices, including hybrids that double as tablets for the ultimate in versatility. Here’s our list of the Top 10 Ultrabooks based on our extensive reviews.
One of our favorite Ultrabooks, the 3-pound Acer Aspire S7 features a powerful fourth-generation Intel Haswell processor, a fast 128GB SSD and a gorgeous 1080p touch screen display. The S7 still features a beautiful glass and white aluminum chassis that’s just .51 inches thin, but it now offers nearly 9 hours of battery life.
