Acer Aspire S7
Perhaps one of the best examples of a Windows 8 ultrabook in action, the S7 is a shockingly thin laptop with a glass touch-screen. The crisp 1,920x1,080-resolution display works extremely well with Windows 8's touch interface, although a $1,649 price tag for the Core i7 version definitely puts it in the "premium" territory.

The good: The Acer Aspire S7 is a premium-looking ultrabook, with great performance, strong battery life, and a high-res touch screen.
The bad: The expensive S7 is priced well beyond most other touch-screen Windows 8 laptops. The touch pad is not as responsive as it should be.
The bottom line: One of the few standout products from the first wave of Windows 8 laptops, the Acer Aspire S7 proves that Apple does not have a monopoly on great design.
