  1. What a total beast, especially the battery. Granted it’s heavy for an ultra book, but nothing is going to beat it for battery life with comparable specs.

    1. This isn’t an Ultrabook, it doesn’t meet any of the criteria (except for having an SSD).

      Ultrabook is an Intel term, and their criteria is:

      Unibody chassis
      SSD
      Intel U-series processor
