Ok, I start University next week and my Student loan comes in. I was just wondering what the best ultrabook would be.
I'd like for it to fit in my backpack, so preferably a 13", perhaps 15", not sure.
I'd also like it to be thin and light.
8GB's of RAM and at least 256GB SSD.
For the CPU, I'd like an Intel i5 or i7 (quad core if possible). Also, if possible the CPU to be Haswell.
Battery life is a must too.
So far, I've found a few ultrabooks. The first being a Razer Blade, this was way too expensive though and not readily available in the UK. The second was a Surface Pro, this has a good price with student discount, but the battery life concerns me and also the fact that the next gen Surface could be out soon. I also had a Surface RT, but I need to be able to run proper applications on it. The third device I looked at was the Macbook Air 13", this device met all the criteria (8GB's RAM, 256GB SSD, long battery life and i5/i7 Haswell processors, would have preferred quad).
The only thing stopping me from buying the Mac instantly is the price even with student discount, it comes to £1015, which I'm struggling to justify.
Please can I have people's opinions on what I should purchase.
