What Ultrabook would you advise to turn someone away from Mac

My friend, a long time Apple Fan, has recently grown disenfranchised. He's considering a Windows 8 Ultrabook instead of his previous MacBook Pro. These are the minimum specs he wants: - 8 gig RAM - i7 - 3 ghz His want of an Ultrabook was sparked after seeing my Series 9, but he doesn't want the same computer as me so don't suggest that. He's a sucker for looks, so choose something sexy. If he doesn't buy a PC he's getting a $2000 MacBook Air, so theirs your price range. So any suggestions? I've got a few of my own (searched all the major manufacturer's) but wanted to see what you guys thought was the best. Please help!
