Fujitsu Lifebook SH772

Fujitsu's 13.3-inch Lifebook SH771 fits right into the corporate environment with its understated matte black finish and slim form-factor. The finish is actually smudge and fingerprint resistant which will help maintain its professional aesthetic. It also sports a complete collection of connectivity ports and a built-in optical drive that can easily be swapped out to shave 100g off of its total weight. It's also one of the few notebooks available today that's still made in Japan and, as expected, build quality is top notch. This model is built like an Ultrabook, but utilizes a full powered 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3210M (2.50GHz) mobile processor, 8GB RAM and 750GB HDD.

  • Sitex Price: $2088

HP Envy 4 Touchsmart Ultrabook

The HP Envy 4 Touchsmart Ultrabook is one of the most stylish touchscreen Ultrabooks out there with a lid and matching interior done up in sleek brushed aluminum. Not only does it look good, it's also powerful enough to get some serious work done. It's packing an Intel Core i5-3317U (1.7GHz) processor, 8GB RAM and a 500GB HDD with 32GB SSD cache. Unfortunately unlike the original Envy 4, it doesn't have discrete graphics, however, this explains its very attractive pricing. Music lovers should also give this one a closer look as, on top of its Beats Audio, it's got an on-board subwoofer.
