Summary: First thing I did was to get windows 8 removed - not very straightforward but nowhere near as difficult as you may have been led to believe! Using SSD drive as essentially a boot drive is a nice touch but I can't test it on my Linux Mint installation because in my haste to rid myself of Windows 8...
Summary: Beautiful laptop! Small, thin, very light -at least, comparing it with my 15.6 Acer, previous one- It boots really, really fast -Windows 8 & the 32GB SSD- It has 4 hours of battery -it could be better, but i am happy with that.
Summary: I must say the ultralbook has been pretty good to me. I bought it for two reasons it was light and the battery life. I love it's weight and quick start up the most but I must admit the battery life is a little underwhelming.
Toshiba Satellite U940 - 100 14-inch Ultrabook (Intel Core i3 - 3217U is really good value

Summary: I have bought this as an overseas holiday item, I could have gone for a tablet as a replacement for my"died a death" previous travel laptop, it decided to overheat and fry the motherboard, but instead chose this due to the good reviews here. So far I'm not disappointed at all.
Summary: Good lightweight laptop at a competitive price. Mouse pad is a but big making it difficult to type without moving cursor, however using an external mouse and turning off pad resolves this. Otherwise very happy with the laptop
Superfast ultrabook, only the bad sound quality brings it down

Summary: So we bought this ultrabook for my partner a few months ago and she loves it. Despite the relatively big screen the device is very thin and lightweight, it's easy to move it around at home, even with one hand. Specs-wise you can't really ask for more.
Summary: I spent an age looking and choosing a laptop and in particular Ultrabooks as I wanted something that would take seconds and not minutes to fire up like my old 10 year old laptop does! This is a great piece of kit. It goes from cold to connected to the net in around 15 seconds.
