Ultrabook or no Ultrabook?
I don't really use laptops for gaming or video editing -- I leave that to my desktop. My main use for a laptop would be web browsing, writing stuff, movies/videos, etc. I don't use a laptop all too much unless of course I'm travelling or am out of the house for a large part of the day.
I'm just left a bit confused over what laptop I should be getting (since I'll be sticking with it for roughly another 4-5 years). I'm really intrigued by ultrabooks, but those are fairly expensive and the only worthwhile one I've noticed is the recent Dell XPS 13", but the lowest I could find is $830 w/ no taxes.
Are there any recommendations for laptops? I'm just browsing around right now; I might end up buying during Labor Day weekend or wait a bit longer -- but I'm trying to find out some good laptops to look at. I don't want an Apple product, I'd much rather prefer Windows.
If it helps any, I can get student discounts too.
