Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 vs Acer Aspire S7 vs Toshiba Satellite U925T:Is it right comparison?

W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                Lenovo IdeaPad Y500                                                                                                                               The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 offers high-end components, including gamer-level graphics, a swappable accessory bay, and the coolest-looking backlit keyboard I've seen in a long while.The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 is a great choice as a gaming laptop that’s lighter and cheaper than your typical desktop-replacement monstrosity. It’s got a full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, and high-motion content looks excellent in playback. Despite a few minor drawbacks, overall it’s a great machine that offers excellent performance and specs for the price.
But, If only the Y500 had a touch screen, which is practically required for the Windows 8 UI, it might be one of my favorite laptops of the year.
The bottom line: For those looking for something more than a feature-light ultrabook, the gamer-friendly Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 is close to brilliant, and several configurations are currently available at a deep discount -- but I can't believe it doesn't have a touch screen.                                                                        Specifications

The battery life with this device is great and the fact that it's only 2.9lbs means that we'll be rocking this baby for a while.
But, The expensive S7 is priced well beyond most other touch-screen Windows 8 laptops. The touch pad is not as responsive as it should be.
The bottom line: One of the few standout products from the first wave of Windows 8 laptops, the Acer Aspire S7 proves that Apple does not have a monopoly on great design.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Specifications

Those are fairly typical specs, as far as Ultrabooks go, though some power users might lament that they can't configure it with a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM or 256 gigs of storage.Battery life on the U925t is good, as long as you're paying attention. I got about five hours of constant use from the device, in a mix of tablet and laptop mode. (That doesn't include playing any games, which absolutely destroys the battery.)                     But, The design leaves the screen exposed at all times, so you'll need a case or sleeve. The screen resolution is low for a $1,149 laptop.
The bottom line: The mechanical elements of the Toshiba Satellite U925t convertible laptop are complex, but well-made. It won't be your main machine, but it's one of the more usable Windows 8 launch experiments.
