Looking for an ultrabook

Looking for good recommendations on Ultrabooks and also which models to avoid.

(1) Budget - 50K (can stretch by a few thou if the model is worth it)
(2) Size & Weight - preferably lightweight and slim (else I would be considering a normal laptop)
(3) Brands
a) I like - Lenovo, ASUS
b) I don't like - HP
(4) Primary tasks - Office applications, browsing, some desktop applications like Evernote, a bit of gaming (ever green ones like AOE II)
(5) Screen res - the more, the merrier
(6) Anything else - looking for the best value, not necessarily the best price. Also, warranty and after sales service does matter to me.

Thanks!

Right off the assembly line
The following 2 machines I think are great deals and the latest offering from Samsung -

1) Samsung NP370R5E-S06IN Notebook ( Intel Core i3-3120M/4 GB /750 GB HDD/ Win8/ 2 GB Graphics-AMD-8750M /15.6 Inch) - Samsung NP370R5E-S06IN Notebook ( Intel Core i3-3120M/4 GB /750 GB HDD/ Win8/ 2 GB Graphics-AMD-8750M /15.6 Inch) - Buy Laptops Online @ Lowest Prices | Snapdeal

2) Samsung NP370R5E-S05IN Notebook ( Intel Core i5-3230M/6 GB/1 TB HDD/ Win8/ 2 GB Graphics-AMD-8750M /15.6 Inch) - Samsung NP370R5E-S05IN Notebook ( Intel Core i5-3230M/6 GB/1 TB HDD/ Win8/ 2 GB Graphics-AMD-8750M /15.6 Inch) - Buy Laptops Online @ Lowest Prices | Snapdeal

Both are slim - 19mm and light - under 2kg and come with a pretty decent graphics card as well. Only con is that there is no DVD drive.

Thanks, I'm considering ASUS S56CA, which does come with optical drive, but no graphics card. Processor is i5 but a low voltage version. For my usage, I think it should be sufficient.

Asus S56CA-XX056R Ultrabook (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 750GB 24GB SSD/ Win7 HB) - Asus: Flipkart.com

Snapdeal is offering a lower price (2K less) than Flipkart. Anyone has experience with buying from Snapdeal here? I've always purchased from Flipkart before.
