    The 13" Asus UX31 with a 900P LCD. The 13" Toshiba Z830/Z835 is lighter as compare to the MBA and offers a full set of ports. Neither has the MBA's Thunderbolt port or 1440x900 16:10 LCD. Next gen ultrabooks should take more expandible alternatives through Thunderbolt ports as well as plus native USB 3.0 provided by the Panther Point chipset.

    Spank? Depends on what you want. The Toshiba Z830/835 is lighter and cheaper, but is not extreme fairly and lacks a high-res screen. The Envy 14 Spectre has a great display, solid construction, and Beats audio, but it is a pound heavier as compared to the MacBook Air 13.

    No ultrabook has beaten the MBA 13 on all fronts. The MBA's had too long to work on refinement and attention to detail. But if we experience what you expect, there might be one that beats it in surely particular categories.

    And like for Apple, I have not heard anything dramatically different right about the corner. They will may be introduce a model with several additive improvements when Ivy Bridge-generation CPUs come out in a some months.

    Thanks Mitlov, yeah the specfications with the Toshiba Z835 look similar to the apple but your missing everything the aesthetics. Battery life is vital to me, but for my novel job I am going to be doing a much more of wire framing during meetings with clients in SF, thus maybe style points for MBA might be desired it.

    I was wishing something at CES would really be positioned to rock the MBA. Just the Envy looks to have attempted and a glass case is not worth the extra cost and weight to me.

    I would expect not only for Apple's response to ultrabooks, but for ultrabooks that use Intel's novel Ivy Bridge CPU. Even, do not limit yourself to ultrabooks, there are a much more of nice non-ultrabook ultraportables such as the Thinkpad X220 and Toshiba R830.

    The Toshiba can be assembled with faster CPU's if you require it, everything ultrabooks have alternatives for faster components. If you demand battery life, I would imagine the HP Folio 13 if you demand an ultrabook, but I would encourage a Thinkpad X220. With the 9 cell it has epic battery life, like 10+ hours of actual world apply on battery. The X220 is even ahead as compared to everything ultrabooks and the Air since it applies a Standard Voltage CPU instead of ULV ones.

    I have actually loved my Asus ul30v these last couple years. Primarily portable but durable and long battery and plenty of RAM that I can run a second monitor or multiple desktops

    Yes. April or May will watch Ivy Bridge refreshes of these notebooks. Intel's altering from 32nm to 22 nm lithography intends those systems will be faster and apply less power and have widespread USB 3.0. ports.

    Not to refer that Intel is even beginning to keep more emphasis with the integrated graphics processor by dedicating more die space to it. From what I have read with Anandtech, a 30% increase in GPU performance is wanted from Intel's HD 4000 in comparison to the HD 3000.

    The CPU slope is suppose to watch a 15% increase in power and lower energy consumption because of the novel transistor plan & lithography reduction. I for one am excited to watch integrated graphics proceed to advance. My computing demands will more as compared to be fulfilled.

    I guess the problem is I need something today, the hinge with my Asus UL30V is broken and I can not meet clients with it enjoy this. Probably it would be smarter something as the ASUS U31SD-AH31 and acquire a novel flashy computer May of 2013 when the wave after this is novel. My Asus UL30V performs only all right for today.
