So it has WORSE specs then the Asus UX32 for the SAME price and you guys are excited? I'll wait for the UX32. It can't be that hard to get the weight down when the thing is rockin' 1st gen Ultrabook parts.

Cool on the outside, but with the "720" screen and the Intel HD 4000 graphics, it looks like pure disappointment on the inside.

It's the same specs as the 11" Macbook Air. Where would you even put a graphics card on an 11" ultrabook? It's not a gaming laptop. /facepalm

Interestingly enough, carbon fiber is over twice as efficient as aluminum for heat dissipation. So there's another functional benefit to this aside from weight, strength and aesthetics.

Mmmmmm, Carbon Fiber. If I had the money I would buy one of these in a heartbeat. Not happy about the graphics, but it would be acceptable for what I would be doing with it.

The sony vaio z series 13.1 inch looks a lot better than any "ultrabook" that has been released. http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langId=-1&partNumber=VPCZ21SHX/X#specifications
