1. 1920X1080 or 1600X900
2. i7 or i5 Ivybridge CPU
3. Preferably Dedicated GPU such as GT 635m or GT 640m
4. 13.3 inches or 14.1 inches
5. SSD only or SSD+7200RPM HDD


I dont care for brands very much but I do not wish for Lenovo or Acer brands.

More about : suggest ultrabook

The only brand that sticks out that would have everything you want would be Apple, as in macbook pro.

I have never suggested anyone buy a mac before, but it seems like it would be your only option to truly have everything you want. Ultrabooks simply do not come with dedicated GPUs, i recall an Asus ultrabook that had a GT610m..

I have a samsung series 7, has a GT640m, quad core i7m, 1600x900, is 15.6 inches and i have 2 hard drives, a 256gb m4 ssd and it came with a 7200 rpm 750gb hitachi 2.5mm drive. (I replaced dvd drive w/ the ssd). However it is not an ultrabook, it is just under an inch thick and weights 5 pounds.

So you either want to go for a non-ultrabook form factor or choose apple, as no laptop will have dedicated graphics above a gt610/620 and be ultrabook thin.



This might fit the bill!

If you dont mind the 1600x900 screen, Sony, Gigabyte, and Dell all offer i5/i7 ultrabooks with 640m GPU's.
