    Hey guys

    My old Asus ul30vt, which I bought 5 years ago after browsing this forum, has burned down, and I'm going to buy an ultrabook - the question is just, which?

    Here are a couple of options, and I hope you can tell me, which is the better:

    Samsung Ativ Book 9 (not plus, but aluminium casing):

    - Intel Core i5-3337U GPU
    - 1920*1080 display
    - 4 gb ram
    - 128 gb SSD

    Lenovo Yoga 13 (a bit more expensive than the other two):

    - Intel Core i7-3537U GPU
    - 1600*900 touch display
    - 8 gb ram
    - 512 gb SSD

    Sony Vaio Pro 13:
    - Intel Core™ i3-4010U GPU
    - 1920*1080 display
    - 4 gb ram
    - 128 gb SSD

    Other options would be an Asus Vivobook S301 or Lenovo U330P both with Haswell i5 GPU's but only 1366*768 screen resolution.


    What is most important:
    - Good screen
    - Good keyboard
    - Good battery life

    Hope you have some advice:)

    Thanks in advance!:)

    I would note that Samsung have quietly released a Haswell Ativ Book 9 (model NP900X3G) which is essentially an refresh of the NP900X3E with the same non-touch matte display. One other improvement is that some versions have 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. Battery time is also improved. However, if the extra RAM / bigger SSD are not priority features then you may find remaining stocks of the non-Haswell Book 9s being discounted.

    Thanks for the reply John.

    I can't afford the NP900X3g since it costs around 500 dollar more than the NP900X3F-K01 where I live.

    But would you say the Samsung is better than the Sony Vaio or Lenovo Yoga?
