It is really weird to read the EETimes one day opine that Ultrabooks are dead and Windows + ARM will kill off Intel's notebook business, and then the very next day we are told that Ultrabooks will drive SSD sales. I guess it is too much to hope for some editorial consistency.

@GroovyGeek- Thanks for your comment. This is a report on a forecast by market research firm IHS iSuppli, not a prediction by EE Times.

@GroovyGeek Must be different authors. Different people have different opinions you know. Happens in regular news papers too.

Yes, it is from IHS iSuppli. EETimes would have linked that report. Let us have that habit as these analysts can confuse people. It is OK to have different opinions - it is the same in Wall Street.

One expects a higher level of accuracy and consistency from a publication that used to have technical aspirations. Perhaps they need to have more technically savvy and experienced editors. Otherwise readers will have to do the hatchet job !

@chipmonk- EE Times reports information from a variety of credible sources. Sometimes—in fact quite frequently—information, forecasts and theories from one source may conflict with that proffered by another. We present this information, as nearly all publications do, with the expectation that readers will apply their own experience and critical thinking skills to form their own opinions.

I saw the Ultrabooks in the Intel booth at CES and indeed they are cool. It's about time the Macbook Air had some competition from a similar form factor running Windows. But what was most interesting is that one Ultrabook from a particular vendor was much thinner than the others. Apparently if you incorporate SSD, you can call it an Ultrabook, but that doesn't mean it's going to be ultra-light and ultra-thin.

It seems to me that the Ultrabook will be a very useful device indeed, and it will replace laptops and notebooks. Whereas the tablet is a completely different animal. Therefore, I don't understand why EE Times is pitting the two against each other. I'd like to know how many EE Times reporters write their articles on tablets.

Cache ssd looks synonymous with the embedded nand of the hybrid drive, not knowing the exact configuration and controller details.

What are enhanced electrical specs for Ultrabook? It will be nice to see what kind of battery will they use. Will Ultrabook be suitable for defense industry?
