Best ULTRA portable laptop --- recommendations?

Haven't looked into laptops in sometime... anyone have a good recommendation for ULTRA portable laptop?

Preference:
1. Windows
2. SSD
3. Intel
4. Light weight

Not too worried about price, as long as form factor and build quality is there.

No MacBook Air --- thanks :)

Dell XPS 13. Great little machine with a great display!

HP Spectre is a legit most lightweight and ultra portable laptop at the moment. Lightest laptop at the same performance by quite a bit.

Surface Book is awesome choice if you are into the idea of 2 in 1. Surface Pro 4 is also very good, not quite a laptop, but depends on how you use your laptop it might be better than a laptop.

Dell XPS 13 is also pretty good. Not as "sexy" as neither Spectre or Surface Book but it is also a little cheaper.

Lenovo T460s or T460. Business class machines which will be more durable.

"sexy" is relative, I think the tiny bezel and more compact form factor of the XPS 13 looks much nicer than the Spectre.

Ditto! The screen on the XPS 13 is definitely a looker!

Based on OP description. XPS 13 is not the thinnest and lightest. Therefore, not as sexy. Pretty straight forward.
