The Aspire S3, IdeaPad U300s, and Portege Z830 all have their subtle differences, but at their core, they&rsquo;re machines designed for maximum portability with a minimal corresponding sacrifice in utility. Apple&rsquo;s MacBook Air is the gold standard in this respect, so we thought it worthwhile to see how well it stacked up against the Windows-equipped newcomers."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1315362251.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Not much to add to this article, as it's physical size comparisons between a bunch of ultrabooks. Of course, the MacBook Air is still sitting atop the (size) pedestal, waiting for challengers. Some very nice offerings for Windows users!
