    1500 euros but then that probably translates to the same in dollars or at least close!

    So what i need is something thin and light (hence ultrabook)
    I want really around 15" screen, maybe even 17" if its possible?
    A touch screen wouldbe a bonus
    High res screen!
    SSD
    8-16gb ram

    I think thats all, too much to ask?

    I did some quick research.

    1500 Euros = $2000 US

    I don't know if I would call any laptop around 17" and 'ultrabook'. They also tend to be very heavy.

    This is currently the leading ultrabook - Acer | Aspire S7

    You should be able to get it in you budget.

    yeah problem is you cant really convert, a laptop that costs 1500 USD will probably costs €1500

    I kinda realised 17" might be too much but I dont really want to go below 15" really :)

    I don't really know what you'll be using this for, but the Dell Inspiron 17 7000 is definitely worth a look. It's got a lot of power, full HD touch display at 17.3 inches, and it's a beautifully designed machine. It comes in much under budget for you, but it's a monster none the less.

    I know it's 1 inch under your specified minimum for screen size, but Paul Thurrott was absolutely raving about the Lenovo Think pad X1 Carbon ultrabook the other day and he rarely ever does that about anything. From reading the specs it sounds like a total winner.

    That really does look nice. Dell's Inspiron line seems to get a bad rap but I'm on my second one and have liked them both. For the price you really can't beat them a lot of times.

    Yeah, one thing to remember is that we're just now seeing machines that are post private Dell. They are doing some really cool stuff. If you're out at a Best Buy or something like that, pick the computer up, feel it, and run a few things. It's really a beautiful machine! :)

    Yep. Just got my new 15" Inspiron a few weeks ago and it's not a touch screen but it's still a darn nice machine for the money.

    I picked up the Asus N550JV-DB72T last month, and am pretty pleased with it now.

    15.6-inch IPS touch screen, 2.4-GHZ Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor with 8GB of RAM, 1TB 5,400rpm SATA hard drive, Nvidia GeForce GT 750M GPU and a DVD drive.
