As technology has advanced it feels like the traditional desktop has been pushed aside by more and more powerful laptops, but as a consequence, laptops have been getting bigger and heavier. An ultrabook feels like what a real laptop should be, small, light but uncompromising on power. Here at Techscheme, we've put together a list of some of the best ultrabooks available from our partners at Currys PC World, all available with brilliant Techscheme savings.


Microsoft Surface Laptop

At top spec, the Surface laptop isn’t necessarily cheap, but there are a range of hardware options to choose from to suit your needs. One thing that’s definitely true, though, you pay for quality.

It comes with Windows 10 S, is powered by an Intel Pentium i7 processor and 16GB of RAM and provides 512GB of Solid-State storage. The PixelSense touchscreen display is functional, responsive and beautiful to look at; this is a laptop that can easily handle all your home and work needs while being light and easily portable. It’s an ultrabook in the truest sense of the word.


Razer Blade Stealth

There used to be a time where you had to the biggest of desktop rigs to be a hardcore gamer, these days, brands like Razer manage to fit all of that raw power into a 13.3-inch touchscreen ultrabook. It’s pretty amazing.

Running Windows 10 and powered by an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage the Blade Stealth is a difficult beast to contend with. That's before you find out that the display is touchscreen, outputs in Quad HD and has Thunderbolt 3 ports so that you can connect your easily portable gaming laptop to your home displays. 


Dell XPS 13.3 Touchscreen

The Dell XPS 13 is one of those laptops that end up on all sorts of lists. It's one of the best laptops around, and for the price, it's arguably the best deal you can find for an ultrabook. It’s a super slick, powerful laptop. The latest 8th generation Intel processing power sits behind the scenes of this touchscreen laptop, backed up by 16GB of RAM and 512Gb of Solid State storage.

There isn’t a millimetre of space on this narrow aluminium and carbon fibre laptop, which makes it nice and comfortable to carry around, as well as being pretty easy on the eye.


Asus Zenbook 3

The 12.5-inch Zenbook 3 is less than half an inch thick, and weighs less than a kilogram. It may be one of the smallest and lightest ultrabooks around, but don’t let that fool you, it still packs one heck of a punch.

With an Intel Core i7-7500 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD hard drive the featherweight Zenbook can duke it out with the best of them. The Full HD display doesn't just look great, it's also super durable thanks to its Gorilla Glass covering. Simply put, the Zenbook 3 is one of the best, most portable laptops you can find.
