If you're in the UK, pcspecialist has a lot of laptops, all customizable. I'm thinking of going mobile and getting one myself. You can get all the specs you want from there, except only 250GB SSD. Good prices as well, and seems to have a good reputation.

Cool, thanks guys!
Wow what a love letter to the customers there! Seems like a great company.

Both PC Specialist and ADK are not slim ultrabooks though.

Asus have new Ultrabook with Nvidia graphics, 3 usbs, but max 256gb ssd
Samsung got 512gb ssd ultrabooks but only 2 usbs. I strictly need 3 usbs

This Asus Zenbook would be perfect if it was a 4rth gen quad core and not hybrid but full ssd:

3 usb slots, nvidia graphics, superslim..

My studio partner got a quad core i7 Zenbook last year, but now they seem to only ship with dual core. Maybe its better to wait a couple of months since 4th gen was just resently released?

i think if you need this power, you should forget ultra book but get a Thinkpad W series...
