I am in the market for a new laptop. I would prefer an Ultrabook as the features and portability are comparable to a Macbook Air with a smaller price tag in most cases.
I want solid graphics, a reasonably sized (SSD) or a hybrid hard disk with a solid-state or flash-memory cache or booster, 6-8gb of memory with room to upgrade, either 3rd gen i5 or i7 processor and a screen size of 13-15".
I have a budget of around $1100 +. Do they make any Ultrabooks with a Thunderbolt port? I expect to be needing high speed transfer capabilities at some point as I will be editing video footage in the near future as well as using Photoshop.
Who would recommend a Macbook Air/Macbook Pro over an Ultrabook and vise versa? There's already been an HP dv6t-Quad built for me with 3rd gen i7, 750gb HDD, 8gb memory and windows 8 64, but I would like something a little lighter. The laptop has not received the best reviews, many concerning the quality of the display and trackpad.
