    Saw "1366x768 LED...". Next article please.
  2. With how fast (some) analysts are predicting ultrabooks prices are gonna fall, why buy in now? Except if you really can't afford to wait e.g. dying PC
  3. I bought and Acer 15" i3 4GB 500GB etc for 350€

    If your PC is dying you still have a lot of options before considering an ultrabook, even at that price. AMD also has something similar to ultrabooks at 200$/€ less.
  4. I was hoping someone will build a decent numpad endowed ultrabook.

    Once more, we readers here at Techspot don't see the value in expensive notebooks, being mostly gamers requiring high end desktops. Usually, web surfing (reading Techspot) is all we do with laptops and these prices just don't fly. I desire more like a $300 laptop. My Toshiba starts in less than a minute with no ssd, and it was less than $500 5 years ago.

    15-inch + 1366x768 = fail

    My 7-inch Nexus 7 has 1280x800 and between 8 and 10 hours runtime and only costs $319AUS.

    To me ultrabooks should have a similar ppi and runtime but with a built-in keyboard.

    While I agree the screen resolution is outdated (for that price at least, 300-450 dollar books is understandable) I really like the "hybrid" form factor, although a Blu-ray drive would have made more sense I also agree.

    I like the picture with the hand over the touchpad... no commenters going to comment on this? lmao, this is actually a bigger deal than there being no numpad.... but who am I to judge.
