No they don't. I spent weeks looking for an alternative ultrabook, and all of which had a flaw which ruled them out. The only true alternative is the Lenovo X1 Carbon, and it's 50% more expensive.
95% of ultrabooks don't even have a great trackpad. Most of them are alright. But not great. And most reviewers agree, that none of them are as good as Apples.
