If you’re looking for a professional grade laptop for under $1000, the new ASUS VivoBook Pro N552VW-DS79 might just be what you’re looking for. ASUS have recently began closing the gap between their mid-range notebooks and their ultrabooks. Both are now closer to each other in terms of design and performance.
The latest addition to Dell’s popular XPS series is the 15.6″ premium ultrabook, the Dell XPS9560-7001SLV-PUS. This flagship device is viewed by many, including Dell themselves, as a MacBook Pro killer. While that’s debatable, its desirable characteristics make it at least a worthy contender.
