Its going to take them two years to get ultrabooks right
Right now, we're getting served the early adopter models... you know... early adopters... those guys with the arrows sticking out of their backs.
Some of these Ultrabooks (thinking of a recent Samsung model) have a worse, smaller screen and are basically like skinny netbooks with faster CPUs, and at the same time they are heavier than a Sony VAIO VPC SA model at 1.6kg, which has 1600x900 resolution, optical drive, i7, powerful HD6630M GPU, 3G module and backlit keyboard, and costs less.
Do we really care that much how many millimeters thick they are? I mean sure, I'll always be happy to take a lighter, thinner computer, but not at the cost of essentials.
And when the super skinny units are heavier than a slightly thicker one with more features, I stop caring at all...
But everybody just has to follow Apple, its a mass hysteria like we haven't seen since the crusades?
