Asus Zenbook, Fujitsu Life book, and Trinity notebook

All portables are not the same—by a long shot
Even though we found almost two dozen Ultrabooks, we only had two we could test in time for this issue. And we have an AMD Trinity-based laptop. We put those three units through a couple of tests, specifically the FinalWire AID64 suite and 3Dmark11. The results were surprising, and a little disappointing.
The three machines were similar but not exactly the same.
We started out with great expectation on the graphics tested and then had to keep backing off down to 1024 x 600 resolution to get a useful FPS score.
What do we think?
Based on the above tests and the Ultra Factor, the Asus Zenbook is clearly the big winner. What’s more, the Zenbook has a backlit keyboard and IPS display.—J.P.
