    Let's hope the keyboard is decent unlike on most ultrabooks, Lenovo are usually exceptional in that aspect.

    It's a bit heavy compared to the competition though, even though it's made out of carbon fibre.

    Pricing is the question. Anything that costs more than MacBook Air would be a hard sell.
  4. How is it the thinnest? The Macbook Air is 17.2 mm at the thickest point.
  5. Oh, I want this so much. If its <$3000 with all the extras, warranty and such, I'm game. My current Thinkpad T500 is set to self destruct in about two years, now I just need to befriend a Lenovo employee to get employee discount :)

    @Guest, I have to assume the answer to your question is that the MacBook Air is not an ultrabook, per Intel's own terms.
  7. Nice laptop but it's definitely not the thinnest Ultrabook, maybe the thinnest 14 inch Ultrabook

    HP Spectre is 0.69 inches = 17.5mm

    I am sure the Samsung Series 9 and Asus Zenbook UX32VD are also thinner. Things are going to get interesting once Apple launches next generation MBAs, with upgraded specs and possible price drops. Considering Apple laptops have awesome resale value and Parallels just costs $80, that makes MBAs enticing even for Windows users, especially since they have unmatched construction quality, screens and trackpad.
