ASUS UX32VD ultrabook about $1000 USD

Small & light - 13.3" 2.9 lbs

powerful with i7 CPU and Nvidia GPU and up to 10G RAM

Beautiful 1920x1080 IPS LCD screen with almost full sRGB color space cooverage

decent storage with 500GB HD + 24GB SSD hybrid drive and USB3.0 for speedy transfers to external backups.

I just bought the Windows 8 version of this ultrabook (UX32VD-DH71). The screen quality is amaxing. However the default hard drive (5400rpm hdd) is too slow and I switched it for a 256GB SSD and within a few days I will also upgrade the ram from 6GB to 10GB. There is other versions of the laptop that come with SSD pre-installed but less ram (4GB) and are not upgradable. Aside from the bloatware that needs to be uninstalled, it seems to be a fast high quality option though I read many users complaining about some defects here and there. So I would recommend it if the buyer needs to spend some time with it making sure his unit is not defective before taking it to a long trip.
