Ultrabooks: ipad killer or what Netbooks were supposed to be

robo_dev
I hate to admit it, but is the whole industry chasing Apple?

Tablet sales are replacing low-cost laptops and the Mac Book Air is a big seller at the high end of the market.

Intel comes to the rescue with their $300M investment in the Ultra Book reference design. Basically a mac-book-air in every garage. Thin, powerful, instant-on, long battery life....but at a price.

Will the Ultra Book stem the tablet-tide, put the MacBook in it's place, or just be another pretty face?

Gotta love these new materials: Gorilla Glass and LiquidMetal..what's next, a computer built into your glasses? ( :) Google)
