    Hey everyone! I'm moving out to school in 2 weeks and need to buy a new laptop. I've always used ultrabooks but mine is very outdated. I found this post-http://boldlist.net/top-ultrabook-laptops-2016.php and it lists the new ultrabooks that are out today. Do any of you have any suggestions on which I should get? I'm studying business so I just need the basics that laptops provide.

    I would not at all recommend the Surface Book. Wonderful device but really outclassed by everything else for value and performance. I also don't recommend the Acer as I've always had problems with them. The Lenovo, Dell and Asus are all good though, all reputable brands and despite what the article lists for their specs they're all configurable to what you want in some way.

    Personally my recommendation is the Dell XPS. I'm typing on mine right now and I can't fault it at all. I don't recommend a screen above 1920x1080 though. At such a small size it's wasted, not to mention your battery life will suffer hugely as a result.
