I am not really inclined to research the very, very limited Ultrabooks but if I get some time I might.
P.S. Even the highly reviewed ones like Dell XPS 13 or MS Surface series are beset with numerous issues ranging from minor to pretty serious.
Battery life degrading and not infrequently bulging within 1 year in XPS, coil whine, thermal throttling. Surface series has had sub-par wireless since forever. Numerous software bugs which take a surprisingly long time to squash. When you get past the shiny its a shit-storm. Plus practically zero upgrades/extortionate repair costs. Official upgrades costs make Apple seem rational in comparison.

I am using HP Envy 13 with i7 7th gen, 512 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM for last 2 1/2 years. It weighs about 1.25 Kg. So would that be a ultrabook.

repairability is a big issue. if anything happens they’ll just tell you to replace motherboard which ll cost you 70% of the device. You have to pay a hefty amount for Extended warranty. you should only go for mac if macOS is a must for you. op listed some windows based laptops so I think macOS, not his requirement. so it’s better to go with other windows laptops which provides better value for money.

I think MacBook tops the list (Surface book is way too costly (Surface pro ..its more like a tablet than a laptop) so I’m ignoring it) .. other brands more or less the same (Dell XPS, HP Spectre, Lenovo Yoga (ThinkPad not exactly ultrabook), Asus Zenbook
I have had HP Spectre. That laptop had a long list of issues, been following HP forums ever since (No follow up model is issue pro) + I don’t think these ultrabook (especially the sleekest ones like the recent spectre) have better cooling system. They do advertise things differently but real world performance is different

Macbooks have had many issues of late! Thermal throttling has been an almost ever present issue thanks to the style-over-substance philosophy. The keyboard is need of a fix still.
There’s no single product that has zero issues. Hard to recommend one. Just buy one that’s within your budget, meets a certain set of features and has been well received by the experts. Then check user reviews for the next few months. Get the extended warranty if available. Though it tends to be excruciatingly expensive at least in case of Dell XPS and Apple.

define ultrabook

Ultrabook is an Intel specification and trademark1 for a line of high-end subnotebook computers featuring reduced bulk without compromising battery life. Ultrabooks use low-power Intel Core processors, solid-state drives, and a unibody chassis to help meet these criteria.2 Due to their limited size, Ultrabooks typically omit traditional laptop features such as optical disc drives3 and Ethernet ports.[citation needed] The name “Ultrabook” represents a portmanteau of the words “ultraportable” and “notebook”

Why pay such exorbitant price for a ultrabook,? I apologise for asking such a question. In ultrabooks you ll get light weightness n extra battery life. But you’ll get almost everything soldered to the motherboard. It’s an issue. Otherwise you can state your requirements and we can find a good laptop for you. But please don’t go with ambiguous terms like ultrabooks. State your exact requirements.
