At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Intel CEO Paul Otellini discusses Intel’s notebook venture as the “most satisfying and complete computer experience” ever with a sleeker and lighter design and a long battery life at mainstream prices.

At Hewlett-Packard's event in San Francisco today, Senior Vice President and GM Jon Rubinstein shows off the company's long-awaited tablet. Running WebOS, the TouchPad features a 9.7-inch screen and is designed to work in conjunction with the company's WebOS-based smartphones.
HP's ZBook 15 G2 is an impressive mobile workstation, with plenty of available configuration options. Battery life isn't great, but overall this is a well-built system that delivers very good performance for the price.
Dell's Inspiron 13 7000 Series supports laptop and tablet modes, and shines in the screen and storage departments. We're less impressed with its build quality and battery life, though, and would appreciate an Ethernet port.
Eurocom has managed to pack a set of server-class components into a clamshell form factor without making too many compromises. The Panther 5SE is expensive though, so you'll need to make a good use case for buying one.
Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro ultrabook, which is based on a 14nm Intel Broadwell platform, makes an impressive debut.

HP's 14-inch EliteBook Folio 1040 G1 combines ultrabook elegance with MIL-STD 810G robustness. It has a great screen and performs well, but lacks integrated VGA and Ethernet ports. You'll pay a premium price too.
The thin, lightweight and stylish Kira-101's standout feature is its high-resolution 13.3-inch touchscreen. It delivers solid performance and good battery life, but the price is high.
The 10.1-inch Transformer Book T100 is a well made and attractively priced hybrid Windows 8.1 tablet. However, its moderate specification and small size make it difficult to recommend as your primary Windows device.
The ThinkPad Yoga is heavy and short of on-board connectors — an Ethernet port being the most glaring omission. Otherwise it's difficult to fault this ingeniously designed tablet.
The Latitude E7240 is solidly made and well connected, delivering impressive performance in a thoughtful design. It's let down by the keyboard and a lack of configuration options, turning what could have been a superb business ultrabook into merely a very good one.
The ThinkPad X240 offers plentiful configuration options, tried-and-trusted design, solid build quality and a twin battery configuration that delivers long battery life. Overall, this is an excellent business ultrabook.
