Spec showdown: Asus Zenbook Prime Ultrabook vs. the rest

Acer has updated its Zenbook Ultrabooks but how do the new models compare with the rest of the market?

By Melanie Pinola, PC World |  Hardware, Acer, Asus

The exception is HP's aggressively-priced new Sleekbook, and its stylish line of Ultrabooks. The Sleekbook starts at just $599.99, while HP's 14-inch Envy Ultrabook starts at $749.99.

The exception is HP's very aggressively priced new line of Ultrabooks and the Sleekbook, starting at $599.99 for the Sleekbook and $749.99 for the 14-inch HP Envy Ultrabook.

Don't get me wrong -- the Zenbook Prime updates are great, and include a brilliant display, backlit keyboard, and improved audio, making the Prime a top Ultrabook contender. That said, we expect a slew of other Ultrabooks on the way, so get ready for a difficult decision if you're on the market for an ultra-light, wafer-thin laptop.
