SONY VAIO Pro 13 Intel Core i7 8GB 128GB SSD 13.3" FHD Touchscreen Ultrabook Carbon Silver (SVP1321DCXS)
  • Intel Core i7 4500U(1.80GHz)
  • 8GB Memory 128GB SSD
  • Intel HD Graphics 4400
  • 1920 x 1080
  • Windows 8 64-Bit

Pros:

the touchpad is by far the best of any ultrabook.
the keyboard is second maybe only to some lenovos, but just as good.
I'm a unix programmer, and I can go beast-mode on this keyboard all day.
the SD card slot on the side allows a card to be inserted flush with the case!

Cons:

a tiny amount of light-bleed at full brightness, but really nothing to complain about. it's generally a great display.

Other Thoughts:

compatible with linux if you're willing to compile your own kernel.
I have mine configured with arch linux, custom iwlwifi kernel(thanks intel), also with the patched intel_pstate, and I'm loving it.

Of course you won't have to do any of these custom kernel things when these are present in the mainline kernel(probably soon).
