Buy the ASUS UX31

The UX31 (and smaller UX21) were the first true Ultrabooks to become available and ASUS have included a good set of specifications that include USB3, a high brightness 1600x900 screen and 128GB of fast SSD. We've reviewed the UX31 (and UX21) and it's an amazing bit of kit but you'll need to watch out for the keyboard which didn't work-out for us. Our review link is above.

Product Notes
Also available with 256GB SSD and Core i7 (Intel Core i7-2677M) CPU on two additional models. Availability (USA) 12th October.
