    Which is all I care about on a laptop. older games. A 13" screen and a laptop keyboard don't lend themselves to any extended gaming like Dead Island or Diablo 3. For $550 I can live with any limitations of the 310M

    Enter the Ultrabook.

    These might be the new netbook. SSDs are far cheaper now and technology has moved along enough to make these things work. And, a big factor, the screens are bigger. I haven't heard anyone officially saying it, but netbooks were a huge technological gaffe and this is a second try. I've played with the 13.3" screen Asus and it's awesome. Slim, powerful, light... it's got it all.

    Acer and Asus have them now in the stores and HP & Dell are pushing theirs to market. I'm betting they'll give tablets a run for the money. And, towers will continue to diminish in sales.

    to me that's too blurry. sounds like a very high performance "laptop", high performance meaning extra R&D costs on thinness and weight.

    It's the MBA market. People who want the Air footprint, but still don't want to settle for an Apple product. I think they'll do very well.

    netbooks were designed for the sub-$300 range, grandmas and emailers and facebookers. but they were so small and so slow that even those people didn't want them.

    ultrabooks are the new laptops, not the new netbooks.

    Time will tell... I think they'll fit the same niche... Light computing on the go. Laptops for real business or gaming... Or desktop replacement.
