Ultrabooks are smaller, lighter models compared to the E6330 and E6430 full size laptops. Ultrabooks are ideal for when you are looking to have a full functioning laptop in a smaller light weight version. The models have to sacrifice hard drive space, and generally contain smaller Hard Drives than full functioning laptops and do not have internal CD/DVD Drives, not do they have Network Interface cards to connect them to a wired LAN. If you are looking for these features, please look at the Standard TC laptops.
The recommended model listed hear is a Dell XPS 11 12-in One Model. The quote can be found: here
If you are looking for alternative features, like larger hard drive capacity, more memory and processor CPU speed, please contact the Help Desk for a custom quote.
