They want you to get annoyed this summer then replace them next year by with a Windows 8 model boasting an acceptable display.

Crap screen resolution...

The crap screen res is the sole reason I keep looking at Apple's mac pro range instead, with their non-glare "hi res" screens.

They're only 1680 x 1050, but the software I use requires at least 1024 minimum height (and checks). :/

I'll be waiting to see the new Macbook Pro and Macbook Airs - if they have a higher resolution screen it will be a major plus point. This HP ultra book is basically like a Macbook Air 11" but bigger and heavier. I have friends that run Windows 7 on Mac hardware all day (i.e. do not even use OS X) and think a lot of people will as they want a good looking, durable, reliable machine.
