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. You’ll also find new machines with super-sharp quad HD screens. Here’s our list of the Top 10 Ultrabooks based on our extensive reviews.
The HP Spectre 13t-3000 is easily one of our favorite Ultrabooks. In addition to a sleek design, fast performance and more than 9 hours of battery life, you get a full HD touchscreen to navigate Windows 8.1. HP goes the extra mile with its Control Zone touchpad, which provides extra room for executing Windows 8 gestures. A solid keyboard and sweet sounding speakers seal the deal.
