www.engadget.com
Eurocom has carved out a strange but soft spot in our hearts for its desktop replacement-level laptops -- the insistence on overkill hardware leaves even the vaguely ultraportable Monster packing the kind of power reserved for larger-screened (if also much thinner) counterparts.

Review: HP Spectre XT TouchSmart is a sweet-looking, underpowered laptop in an Ultrabook's clothing

www.pcworld.com
I was a big fan of Ultrabooks--or at least the concept of Ultrabooks--when they first debuted in 2012. After all, who doesn't like the idea of sliver-thin laptops that run Windows? Unfortunately, it seems like the definition of an Ultrabook has since expanded to include any relatively sleek-looking ultraportable...
