Question

Which Ultrabook is the best choice for everyday using?

I'm in the market for a new laptop, are they out yet, and should I buy one? I've read some reviews on Ultrabooks, and now I'm not sure that I want a laptop. Ultrabooks are more powerful, they are light and have other good sides. The only bad one is that they are much more expensive. So, I'm choosing it carefully. Don't want to waste my money on bad stuff.
Preferable 900 / 1080p IPS screen, but if all other parts are cool - I guess I can stand TN if it's not the worst one. (Replacing screen with a better one is also an option, but I'd rather like to avoid this one because of warranty loss.)
- 6hrs+ (the more the better) battery life (browsing web, code writing, etc)
(and by 6hrs I mean truly 6 hrs, not just in some synthetic test sponsored by it's producer)
- removable battery (it might be attached with screws or whatever, just an option to remove it without taking apart whole device is ok)
- 4 or 8 GB RAM - I can put another 4 on my own

A review says, ASUS Zenbook UX305LA is the best, but I'd rather want to hear real experience of using it. Or may be recommend me another ultrabook? Thank you.

I personally have a Acer Aspire S7-392-6411 and I love it. The battery life is great ( eight and a half hours of battery life along with high end performance thanks to a 4th generation Intel Core processor, plus durable and quick SSD storage.). I would highly recommend it.
