I think the choice between ultrabook and laptop will depend on how you're going to use the computer and what your price range is. Ultras are definitely gonna cost more. Probably more than $700 for the basic models going up to about $1,200 or more. A decent laptop can be had for about $400.

Then there's size and weight. If you're going to carry it around all day the ultras will be much lighter. But do you want to watch an occasional movie or play a game? The ultras don't have optical drives and they've got really, REALLY small screens. So take a look at this article and see how many check marks you can give to the ultras and how many check marks you can give to the laptops. The one with the most check marks wins. :)
