Looking at an ultrabook, suggestions?
So I'm looking into possibly getting an ultrabook, and hopefully within the next couple days or else I'll just put it off and end up saving money (at least on a new laptop). So anyone have any experience and real hands-on time with an ultrabook? I've narrowed it down to 3 and am strongly aiming towards 1, but just want someone else's experience. I've read my fair amount of reviews and watched a few reviews, but I want to hear from the people, not some professional reviewer.
1. HP Folio 13
Pros: Big battery that lasts up to 7hrs+, backlit keyboard, HDMI port, SD card slot, nice keyboard (from what I hear), and it seems to be about the same weight/size of my Chromebook I got from Google
Cons: Screen is pretty low quality from what I read, trackpad buttons are too stiff,
2. Toshiba Portege z830
Pros: Love the design of it, backlit keys, SD card slot, HDMI port, WiDi, core i7 (can be customized up to it)
Cons: A bit expensive, "wobbly" screen, keyboard hit or miss (from what I've heard)
3. Dell XPS 13
Pros: Best keyboard (according to many), very slim, nice build quality, simple design
Cons: No HDMI, battery life, about the same specs as the HP for more $
This is mostly going to be used for school and light browsing. I was actually thinking about playing Star Wars The Old Republic, so anyone know if it can run that? I'm a bit behind on the computer/laptop game. I'm still using my old Vaio all-in-one that's only Pentium Dual Core with 4gb of ram. Going on about 3 or 4 years strong, forget now.
The only thing I got against HP right now is longevity and fan noise. I got a dying HP Mini 1000 that lasted less than 2 years only and I replaced it with a RunCore SSD. For such a small device that fan could sure make some loud noise.
