Sony is selling the Vaio T13 Ultrabook (otherwise known as the SVT1313C048S.CEK.A) for a mere £630. This is a refurbished model but unlike many of its peers it comes with a two year warranty (rather than just one).
It is powered by an Intel Core processor, the i7-3537U clocked at 2GHz (dual core with 3MB L3 cache), with 8GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, Windows 8 Pro, a 13.3in display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution with touchscreen capabilities, an Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB ports, HDMI, up to seven hours battery life and a card reader.
It is just slightly bigger than an A4 sheet and although there are probably cheaper Core i7 Ultrabooks out there, it is unlikely that they will offer the same combination of components.
Cheaper Ultrabooks will probably become more prevalent towards the end of the year as Ivy Bridge parts are cleared out and replaced by Haswell ones.
