Last month, we wrote a story outlining almost all of the ultrabooks that are available in the local market for 2012 (you can read about it here). We are sure more are coming before end of the year, especially that Windows 8 is set for public launch in October.

The number of ultrabooks since last year has grown significantly and it has reached the point that people can actually have a number of options when looking for their next laptop purchase.

Best Ultrabook • Poll: Who Makes The Best Ultrabooks?

We thought we’d ask people and start a poll — who makes the best ultrabooks?

● Even before the term ultrabooks were coined and popularized by Intel, Samsung was already doing one with the Series 9. They’ve already expanded the line-up to the more affordable Series 5.

● Acer was the first one to bring the first ultrabook to the country with the Aspire S3. They’ve followed it up with the Aspire S5 and then the newly announced Aspire S7.

● Asus came in strong with the Zenbook line, both in the 11.6″ and 13.3″ form factor. They’re also the first one to offer a full HD 1080p display as well as a model with discrete graphics (Zenbook UX32VD).

● Dell’s XPS 13 was very interesting with an edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass display.

● HP’s Envy 14 Spectre placed a premium to the name ultrabook by being the only one sold for over Php100k.

● Lenovo made a consistent move with the IdeaPad U-series bringing in the same old design in a solid body. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is something else though.

● Sony shies away from using the term ultrabook since they boast their Vaio T uses all full-sized ports even with a really thin form factor.

● Toshiba’s Portegé Z830 and Z930 probably took the crown as one of the thinnest ultrabooks.

There are several other players as well. Gigabyte recently launched their own ultrabook, Neo promises a really affordable one this month, and RedFox showed something interesting a couple of months ago.

nako outdated ka sa balita! Marami pang nauna sa 3rd Gen i7 keysa sa Samsung. Asus, Acer, Hp mga nauna mag-launch compared kay Samsung.

Pero since halos lahat 3rd gen na, magkakatalo nalang yan sa

– Resolution = ASUS Wins here with full HD at IPS pa
– Body Build = Dell with Corning or HP? Pero aluminum guy ako kaya Acer S5 or Asus Zenbook.
