Wow, I didn't realize that. Thanks for the info. I still say, even if it is a "toy," it's pretty cool.

still don't think tablet is that convenient in many cases, plus labtop's capability is better to do office work.

It's already happen in China, I think Lenovo or one of other computer maker made that already, but it's not from Sumsung or apple.

The projected increasing sales of the smartphones suggests we'll all look more and more like a bunch of zombies walking around with our eyes locked onto a little screen. It's already bad enough at my workplace to be rather annoying.

Will ultrabooks erode the tablet business? I think slightly. I think it's almost a given that almost anyone who decides to buy an ultrabook is not at the same time also going to buy a new tablet. I am not sure how many people that will be, probably a small number. I think that we are reaching a point when all of these devices--tablets, ultrabooks, chromebooks, netbooks and even traditional notebooks and desktop PC--are in a sense competing for the same dollars. The hope is that the upshot is that these new device categories will grow the overall market, but in a sluggish economy I don't know if that effect will be measureable in the short term. Just my two cents.

I see there are people who need full OS to do some jobs. For them tablet dont do the job. But one thing we are missing is that market shares are shifting from normal to ultra light PC but overall PC market is shrinking. Which means normal notebook market is shrinking much faster rate giving more room for ultra light PC.

I agree GREAT-Terry; this is the only innovation to consider as an inflection point in the electronic gadget field. If you consider that it took years and that's genesis was DARPA, having Siri around in 2011 will make her the 'belle of the ball' in 2012. The DARPA angle (one of them): http://www.fastcompany.com/1785221/siri-ously-darpa

the surprise in the list for me is the ultrabooks. I was thinking that any kind of PC/notebook or variation will be dead due to popularity of the tablet devices. Will this ultrabook erode the tablet business?
