Any recommendations on a great ultrabook or thin-enough laptop with great battery life for running Ubuntu?

Sorry! Thanks for the reminder. BTW this was not a frivolous question. I'm an experienced Ubuntu user who was just interested in great battery performance. But I'll find a different place to ask around. – jerome Mar 20 '13 at 20:19

Dell has XPS 13 super expensive ultrabook preloaded with Ubuntu. But technically you can buy any ultrabook or zenbook, and blow windows away and install Ubuntu in it. Few models I would suggest to look at are, Samsung Series 9, Zenbook, Vizio ultrabook, hp envy spectre. I think in the end it really depends on your budget.

I personally would buy an ultrabook which has Windows 7 with it (not Windows 8) and dual boot it with Ubuntu.

Thinkpad X1 Carbon is a good candidate. – Neutralizer Sep 6 '14 at 18:59
