Great computing starts with Intel inside.
Although this Intel Core-i3 powered Ultrabook is at the low-end of the spectrum, the port variety and decent sized solid state drive still make it competitive.
If a netbook’s a bit too small but portability and price are still important, the HP Pavilion DM1-4018AU is pretty great.
This is the middle child of HP’s new range of ultraportable notebooks, but is very affordable and packed with a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU and big hard disk.
At just 2.22kg, this ultraportable notebook has a far better graphics card than most of the alternatives.
Although it’s a bit heavier than a netbook, the 4016au is still very portable and it has a better amount of computing power.
The 6135TX is a really heavy hitter in the dedicated graphics card department, and the other specs are easily on par with the alternatives.
This ultraportable is focussed around delivering good sound quality, and by our reckoning it’s certainly succeeded.
HP’s updated Pavilion notebooks have generally pleasing exterior, and this version has a mighty set of internal specs as well.
In a competitive allrounder market, this one doesn’t really stand out due to it costing more than more powerful alternatives.
This 15.6in HP allrounder has a tiny hard disk, but you still get an awesome graphics card and a great processor.
No more than $1000

Superb Ultrabook for an unmatched price! This is an Intel Core i5 Ultrabook with both the gaming capability and relatively cheap pricing
