    Hi all,

    I've been doing the rounds of various laptops trying to get one that meets my needs of being lightweight, with a matte screen, good speakers and a good microphone.

    The ones I've tried so far:

    Samsung series 9: All good except the speakers are woeful
    Samsung Series 5 Ultra: All good except the microphone is woeful
    Toshiba Z830: Good speakers and mic but a poor screen and annoying fan noise/cooling that causes the machine to throttle.

    I was considering Zenbooks but I've heard the UX32 has bad fan noise. Is this true? What about the UX31?

    Are there any others I should be considering?

    Cheers

    A good laptop to consider would be the Lenovo Z580 as it is lightweight with good mulitmedia but it depends more on your budget as you could otherwise go for an ultrabook like the Lenovo X1 Carbon, which would give you everthing you could need in a laptop.
