Poll: Which ultrabook are you?

Poll: Which ultrabook are you?

This year is looking to be the year of the ultrabooks. The first half of 2012 saw close to a dozen ultrabooks being launched in the Philippines. The spread is so wide that we’re seeing prices somewhere from Php30k to Php120k.

So, if you had the budget, which ultrabook are you buying? (You’ve also probably bought one so share with us which one you got.)


● Asus Zenbook Prime UX21A/UX31A
● HP Envy 14 Spectre
● Dell XPS 13
● Acer Aspire S3/S5
● Acer Aspire Timeline M5
● Samsung Series 5
● Samsung Series 9
● Lenovo U310/U410
● Toshiba Portege Z830
● Sony Vaio T

Redfox and Neo also got their own ultrabooks which we saw during the Intel Ivy Bridge launch but I don’t think they have been released already. We may also include the Macbook Air in the list even though it’s not one according to Intel.

    Yung Zenbook ako, stand out itsura from the rest, saka astig yung FULL HD IPS niya.

    Walang kwenta na yung mga 1366×768 na ultrabook, sana naman nag 1600×900 man sila.

    available na din ang hp envy 4 (different from envy 14 and envy spectre) for quite some time sa villman, good specs pero i think better alternative ang acer timeline ultra m5, may dvd drive na, better pa ang video card, nvidia GT640 LE. the same lang ang price point. I sort of disagree with kevin about the resolution, i think 1366×768 is more than enough for everyday use and even for gaming on an ultrabook but of course a higher resolution screen would still be ok.

    Is it wise pa ba to buy HP? Rumors have it na magsasara na daw soon ang PC Product line nila and they will just concentrate on their PRINTERS. Just asking lang po…

    Dunno with their ultrabooks,pero madalin umiinit ang unit ng HP as compared to other brands… just a note!!!

  18. I currently own an Acer Aspire S3 with Intel i5 and 320gb HDD. I bought this last year when the first generation of ultrabooks came out. That time, I was looking for a lightweight laptop with practical performance.

    I was intrigued by ultrabooks by their slim and lightweight configuration. Only downside was the high price. Acer S3 was the cheapest of the ultrabooks. Given the 1st gen ultrabooks were pretty much similar to each other, I went with it. If I had an open budget, I might have gone for the Asus Zenbooks but the price tag is at least P10k more than the Acer.

    Today, I don’t regret my purchase. My only issue is the battery life, which is shorter than promised. To offset that limitation (especially when traaveling) I have a portable charger (basically an external battery) that I can plug into the S3 to extend its battery life.

    13inch Mac Air Mid 2011 i5 128GB

    Very Satisfied. Fast (boot up and shut down), light, Battery 8hrs and cool to walk around with hehehe. (nakawin lang, my friend lost his at Starbucks. Bilis ng salisi)

    I would suggest getting ultrabook with FULL SSD. It makes a lot of difference.

    Down side siguro ng mga ultra books you can’t upgrade them…..

    Happy Shopping!

  21. The problem with choosing an ultrabook with SSD is two fold.

    One is the added cost in purchasing the ultrabook. The difference can be as great as P10K.

    The second is the limited storage capacity. Ultrabooks fitted with SSD usually have 128gb SSDs. With mechanical HDD or hybrid drives, storage capacity is anywhere from 320 to 500gb.

    Of course, the fast start up and quick access to your files is a positive thing, for a price difference of P10,000… I think it’s ok to wait a couple more seconds for the ultrabook to start up and access my files. The added benefit of having more onboard storage with HDDs a big bonus.
