Ultrabooks....A number of good options
      06/27/13 01:39 PM

Hello I'm looking to purchase an ultrabook. After having watched many of MTR's videos the past couple of days as I recover from ACL surgery, I've narrowed my options down to the following products.

MBA 2013 - new processor, superior battery life, reliable operating system.... But I think many other ultrabooks trump the MBA in other areas.

Sony Vaio Pro 13 - great screen, processor.... But the review video's mentioning of a flexy keyboard due to the carbon fibre was kind of a turn off.

Asus 31A - great screen, and reliable features.... this was the one I was originally aiming to buy, but the fingerprint-prone keyboard has me looking elsewhere

Samsung Series 7 -- great screen, nice port options, upgradeable RAM and SSD.... im leaning towards the Samsung right now.

Bestbuy in the US has the $999 option with 4gb ram and 128 SSD..... Canada's Bestbuy has a Samsung Series 7 model with 8gb ram and 256 SSD for $1269.... is the latter a good deal or am I better off upgrading the ram and ssd myself?
Would it be wise to wait until other Haswell models come out?

I would be very appreciative of any and all constructive feedback that people feel like sharing.... Thank you and have a good day and week.
