It was a surprise one of those things that haven’t had my eye on Ultra-books till now. It is very similar to Apple’s Mac-book Air design, talked on since Feb issue on Maximum PC magazine. I like the fact that it’ll weigh lighter to carry around than your regular notebooks. I was looking at the prices but dam it’s still expensive, most tech companies are just starting out doing Ultra-books.
Reason I can see Notebook manufacturers making this move because of the tablets are now at this point to succeed, it’s affordable most laptops from what you seen in the market, PC manufacturers are now stepping up and doing something a little different.
Features: One thing for sure is USB 3.0 are now is heading to PC’s but it’s going to head out to the laptop market. I do see this happening quick within a three month period time. Windows 8 is going to be a killing believe it or not it may happen, Since now I don’t know much about the new software is going to look like I did heard from other sources is that it’ll look almost like Windows Mobile User Interface, and have interconnections between phone and PC, for that, I find it to become interesting.
Downside: if anyone in 2012 uses CD’s, sorry, No CD/DVD drives! your going to need an external DVD/CD drive to run disc. Call me crazy I still use CD drives in 2012. Bottom line does anyone needs a ultra-book right now? The answer is no unless if you have the money to drop down and need a laptop to some degree, As for myself I’ll pass! No sense dropping money for a Ultra-book, price is way to steep. if you need a bigger screen a 13 – 15 inch will work, the affordable netbooks I see many purchasing out there will be price friendly.
Do I think it’s a tablet killer?
No!, Not anytime soon.
