    PC Specialist Vortex III 680 review

    9  

    This laptop is a desktop replacement. In fact, the inclusion of a battery is just in case the power in your house goes; it's not going to do anything useful in a machine of this size.

    Toshiba's U840-10V is a lower priced Ultrabook. But it's not light on specs, with an Intel Core i5 processor and 6GB RAM.

    We're living in the post-Ultrabook era. Even when laptops are designed to do something much more taxing than pushing websites around, we still expect them to be sexy.

    PC Specialist Optimus IV review

    8  

    This Transformer-sounding Optimus IV machine features a rather basic, chunky Clevo chassis design. The benefit of that, though, is the ability to drop in whatever components PC Specialist sees fit.

    As far as Windows 8 devices go, the Lenovo's 13-inch IdeaPad Yoga is attractive, snappy, versatile, and surprisingly affordable.

    Not an Ultrabook, but like an Ultrabook, this 13.3-inch Lenovo IdeaPad S300 is a very powerful and portable laptop.

    With Windows 8 appearing as both a tablet and desktop OS, the hybrid tablet-PC idea is one that's reared its head again.

    The top choice if you want the best gaming machine waiting for you at home, but the styling and price won't appeal to everyone.

    The Asus Ultrabook range gets an upgrade, but will a 1080p screen make this high-end laptop worth its hefty price tag?
