But... Do they run Crysis?

Every power user's lineup, which one should have consisted of an Android Phone, a Netbook, a Laptop, and at least one Desktop should now be reduced to a Desktop, an Ultrabook, and an Android Tablet. So long as the phone can perform USB and Wifi tethering, it's no longer essential (only desirable) that it be an Android device.

For the lenovo laptop, on lenovo's website it states that it is $1200. Now for that price, I think thats a steal compared to what your getting.

these days, people are mostly paying for looks, which is kind of disappointing. Size is not the only thing that should be considered. The best gaming rigs are like aircraft carrier size- as in not build for travel.

Rather unfortunate that ultrabooks are still practically embryonic. Just look at smartphones, which are soon to boast 2 GHz quad cores, 1080p screen/camera resolutions, and touch screens to boot...

Hopefully, within the next 2-3 years, Intel will more seriously invest in its R&D (honestly, Sandy Bridge E was hardly a jump from Sandy Bridge, even though they could *easily* have pushed a much faster CPU for the same price), and we'll start getting cost-effective quad cores, and, perhaps more importantly, integrated GPUs. I won't knock on the power of discrete GPUs, but if we're looking at entry-level ultrabooks just under a grand, then a lot of the price heavily relies on Intel, and secondarily, the screen.

Waiting for something like the Asus UX31E, but a beefier proc and better screen, and a little more *under* a grand as opposed to just over it.

Hopefully you can do this same article with the AMD notebooks when Trinity comes out.

Put a Dell Inspiron Duo style 1920x1080 IPS display on the ASUS Zenbook for anything less then $1400 and I'll buy it yesterday.
