So are there any leaks or details of some ultra books that are expected soon and/or where can I stay in touch with upcoming releases?

also I found a video on how to upgrade the ram and ssd on the ux32vd and it looks quite easy

RAM and SSD installs are about as easy as it gets, you won't have any trouble. Undo 1-2 Phillips screws, plug/play and you're done.

I'd check any well known tech blog (Engadget, The Verge, etc). Take their reviews with a grain of salt, but you'll know when the big ones get released.

I can't imagine Haswell Ultrabooks being inordinately expensive, the latest wave of Ultrabooks had a lot of good options around the $1000 price point on release day. Another generation and you'll see more OEM names slipping into the Ultrabook market, more competition and better pricing. Should all else fail, Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks will be available for a steal. Literally no downside to waiting until summer before making a purchase.

Don't worry about getting a laptop for school in September right now for two main reasons. First, new models of laptops will be coming out over the summer time and in autumn for school. Secondly, during July and August stores like BestBuy are always giving special promotions for the season and you can get great deals then. On a side note though I think your headed in the right direction looking at the Asus Zenbook's. Right now these appear to be top of the line products along with the Acer and Samsungs. Also keep a look out for the 15.6" Zenbook coming out in the next month or possibly longer. They recently snuck the product on to their site but it hasn't been released yet. I like the Zenbooks because they utilize IPS panels like a tablet and the colors look phenomenal (just looked at the 13.3" in BestBuy today).

thanks for the replies guys...to be honest besides all the specs and the great reviews on the zenbooks i have to say that i'm in love with the design too. i checked the samsung series 9 and they look quite good but i like the zenbooks better. i like the hp spectre xt too smile.gif

anyway..i will definitely wait for upcoming releases and maybe come back to this thread then or just start another one to see your opinion on my favorite then.

once again thanks for the replies and you have been very helpful

i will rep you guys

cheers
