I was kind of excited for the new HP machines thinking maybe I'll finally get a replacement to my 1830t.
Turns out upon further reading the Envy X2 is powered by Atom and Ultrabook 4 only has 1366x768 screen. So very very disappointing... Looks like it will be a while before I find a suitable replacement for my old trustworthy 1830t.

I'll be getting an elitebook ultrabook 9470m mentioned above. At work I use dual screens so don't care about the built in resolution as much.
It's dockable and has a backlit keyboard which are two biggies for me.
