ASUS ZENBOOK Prime UX31A DB71 - 13.3" - Core i7 3517U - Windows 7 Home Premium - 4 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD

Sony VAIO T Series SVT1311CGXS - 13.3" - Core i5 3317U - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD

Sony's first ultrabook, the Vaio T, doesn't fall far from the tree of other thin Sony laptops like the Vaio Z, but it's far more affordable: this is ultrabook-as-budget-laptop, not ultrabook as high-end computer.

Toshiba Satellite L755-S5242 - 15.6" - P B940 - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 500 GB HDD

The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5166 is neither the best value nor the best total package, but it's a fine middle-of-the-road laptop. However, odds are that better, newer versions are right around the corner.
