Anonymous, 27 Jul 2016They even copied the name lolLOL, what do you expect dude, they claimed everything.
exia000, 27 Jul 2016Ultrabook = notebook? Really? Where did u get that mind-blowing WRONG interpretation, TROLL? ... moreUltrabook is just a marketing term to define this new generation of laptop with better battery life without sacrificing too much performance. They can call it notebook for all they want but with failing PC sales, they probably needed a new branding to get people interested.
mojojojo, 27 Jul 2016the most epic fail is actually also named these laptop as "Air". well doesn't matter cos Apple also name their tablet "Pro"

But, I would love to have the opportunity to do more *on-site* which is why I want the portability.

The HP is really good for the price but the RAM maxes out at 8GB & no SSD harddisk + I don't mind a laptop without an optical disk drive.
The Dell you have linked is even better just that, the RAM is 8GB - does it have a 16GB variant? I'll pick it up right away!

exia000, 27 Jul 2016Ultrabook = notebook? Really? Where did u get that mind-blowing WRONG interpretation, TROLL? ... moreThe point is that this product is fking expensive! I can get the same thing with even cheaper price! Do you want me to show up the link? So that you shut the hell up. How can Asus put in their Zenbook in Notebook section? The truth is its still a Notebook just in Ultra form. You just love to bash people for fun don't you? Instead of helping people. You're crazy man.

dombleh, 27 Jul 2016Guys, would you compare with the same spec.? Such as weight, thickness, i5-6200U, RAM and SSD,... moreASUS ZenBook UX510UW much better specs and performance, better gpu. a bit heavy 2kg due to larger screen size.
