Samsung Series 5 UltraTouch

Samsung's midprice Series 5 UltraTouch looks and feels like a more expensive machine, but keeps it simple by skipping the complex hybrid mechanics of so many new Windows 8 systems.

Samsung Series 7 700A3D - Core i5 3470T 2.9 GHz - 6 GB - 1 TB - LED 23.6"

The Samsung Series 7 isn't the fastest, or the most fully featured midrange all-in-one, but casual PC users should consider it for its affordability and overall polish.

Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook (Wi-Fi)

Despite solid hardware and a slightly improved Chrome OS, the Samsung Chromebook Series 5 550 comes with far too many caveats and compromises compared with similarly priced but more-capable tablets and laptops.

Samsung Series 5 Ultra (13-inch) NP530U3B - 128GB SSD

Samsung's finally made an affordable ultrabook, and the 13-inch Series 5 Ultra is a well-priced and far slimmer product than its 14-inch cousin. Still, it's not a runaway bargain, and it feels like corners have been cut in adapting it from the stellar Series 9's design. You also might want to wait a few weeks for Intel's latest processors to arrive.

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook 530U4BI

If you ignore the ultrabook branding and instead think of this as a somewhat slim midsize, mainstream laptop, the 14-inch Samsung Series 5 is a fine example of the form.

Sony VAIO E Series SVE15112FXS - 15.5" - Core i3 2370M - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 640 GB HDD

With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out.

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Tablet 3435 - 12.5" - Core i5 3320M - Windows 7 Pro 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 320 GB HDD - with UltraBase Series 3

There may not be a better full-fledged business ultraportable than the ThinkPad X230, but more efficient, less expensive, and thinner ultrabooks are the real future of this category.

Samsung Series 7 (15-inch)

Samsung's Series 7 Chronos 700Z5A-S03 is the closest Windows equivalent to a MacBook Pro in terms of specs, power, and design and even nearly matches on battery life, but it's $500 less expensive than an entry-level Apple 15-incher.

BlackBerry Torch 9810 (T-Mobile)

The RIM BlackBerry Torch 9810 should satisfy BlackBerry fans with its responsive touch screen and overall specs, but for $50 more, T-Mobile customers could get the much better Bold 9900 instead.
