Hello Folks,
I am currently looking for an Ultrabook which should cost at most 900$. It should have a dedicated graphics card. I am going to be using it for programming and home use, so it should be reliable. If possible, it should also be available in India - however, that doesn't matter much.
I prefer Samsung, Acer or Dell.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Some features I am looking for :
Dedicated Graphics card(Preferably nVidia)
i5/i7 core
14"/15.6" screen.
Windows 8 is a plus, but not necessary.

You might consider Lenovo - their reliability is high. I used to be a fan of Dell, but not so much these last couple of years. Acer and Samsung are good, but they have some nitpiks too. The Ideapad Yoga is an interesting model - it has a touchscreen and can be used like a tablet. Comes in 11 and 13" versions.

I checked out the Ideapad... but it is way beyond the budget, at INR65000. My budget is INR45000(~900$).

Here you go. The Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition seems to suit you fine.

Take a look at this Asus. Out of stock here, but worth a look.
