[title1]The HP Envy 4-1117nr[/title1][body1]I finally found a used ultra book for $300 on Craigslist. Thanks to unfriendly Windows 8 and HP UEFI boot loader with all the automated software that caused the 32GB SSD partition disappeared some how by the x-owner, hence a very low price.  The laptop still has warranty from the HP until April 2014. It’s an Envy 4-1117nr, great little ultra book which actually last all day with sleeps and wakes and surfing the internet and normal daily work. Playing movies only lasted about 3 1/2 hours.  One good thing about this one is that the option doesn’t come with ATI-AMD 760G which isn’t supported in Mac OSX, but Ivy Bridge HD4000 is, perfect for triple booting Windows 8.1, Apple Mavericks 10.9.1 (FREE) and Ubuntu 13.1 (FREE). There is 1 thing that I need to upgrade to get the Ultimate ultra book to work with Mavericks 10.9.1, swapping the Wifi-Bluetooth combo Ralink 3290 (no support with Mavericks) with $10 AR9285 & AR3011 Wifi-Bluetooth combo.[/body1]
