Factors to be considered while buying an Ultrabook
1. Portability: If an Ultrabook is not portable, it is not called Ultrabook, it is called Notebook. When you buy your ultrabook make sure that it is portable, weighs less and it is easy to carry. A normal ultrabook should weigh around 2.5-3 pounds.
2. Rigidity: If your ultrabook is as thin as a Cardboard, it needs to be as strong as metal. Make sure that your ultrabook is rigid; no damage should occur if you apply some pressure or put some weight over it. And even check the quality of body make material.
3. Display: The ultrabooks usually comes with thin LED displays which are very thin and should be handled with care, so when you buy an ultrabook see whether the make material of the Screen is good or not. Also check if the screen has good resolution and a better High Graphics functionality.
4. Speed: You might think, that you wouldn’t get a good processor in these cardboard look-alike notebooks but you aren’t right, check for processor and its speed before you buy an ultrabook. Normally the processors in ultrabooks are powered by Intel i series, most commonly used is Core i5/i7.
5. It’s Hot: As ultrabooks are quite thin, sometimes they aren’t provided with some cooling technology but you aren’t going to make this mistake as you buy your ultrabook. Make sure that the ultrabook doesn’t sound odd or becomes hot after some time, say 1-2 hrs.
