The new 15-inch and 13-inch Samsung Notebook 9 are made of a light, strong magnesium alloy.
Despite extra storage space and a pleasing design, the Acer Switch 10 E suffers from a low-budget feel.
Despite a few design quirks make it feel less than premium, the Lenovo LaVie Z can't be beat for a combination of light weight and processor power.
The 11.6-inch convertible gets thinner, lighter, and more efficient, with redesigned keyboards that can bring the Helix up to 12 hours of battery life.
The HP Spectre 13 is an excellent all-around ultrabook, with a great keyboard, display, and battery life. The unique Control Zone touch pad is interesting, but I wish it were a little more useful and intuitive.

Ambitious but flawed, the Fujitsu LifeBook U810 has more of a traditional laptop design than other UMPCs, but the otherwise excellent keyboard is marred by the loss of several important keys.
The OQO model 02 is a well-designed, attractive UMPC. If not for its slow CPU and short battery life, it would be a clear category leader.
The Asus R2H is too big to be truly ultramobile, but its relatively large screen and decent battery make it good for on-the-go Web surfing and media playing, even if the onscreen keyboard is a chore to use.
The Samsung Q1's sleek case is definitely eye-catching, but we expect better performance and battery life for a thousand of our hard-earned bucks.
We're still not sold on the palmtop PC concept, but the VAIO VGN-U750P looks to become the most powerful system of its size.
