Ultra-book with touchscreen is viable option that is useful in the business community and it should be able to replace standard Laptop computers that are to heavy and luck multiple options (fast start-up, longer battery usage, tablet like features, and removable keyboard), that Ultra-books have or will shortly have. Business community also requires much better security than what Tablets offer and for any heavy work pop-up screen keyboard can not replace full keyboard.

It's the pride and glory that differentiates it! You use an Apple - you are something and ahead of the pack. Buy a WinTel machine - just a common user.

you are missing the point. There were mp3 players long before iPOD, but iPOD defined the MP3 experience. Apple is never first to market - it just brings the best product to market. Best - measured in terms of features that consumers care about and are ready to pay for. Not features that are laundry listed in a magazine. MACAir - key (price premium) features instant on less than 10s (always) Display resolution - the best there is Light - I dont know if they are the lightest now - but light enough that improving this further is pushing on a string Easy-to-use Tough to define, but when you can get away with charging 2x, you know you have done something right

The unique thing that Apple brought to the table was the ridiculously high price... The LapDock (Motorola's name) approach is likely to be the trend of the future as mobile devices become powerful enough to satisfty 90% of consumers. I still expect Microsoft to integrate the desktop and mobile platforms at some point.

Only four PC OEMs have introduced the thinner, lighter, sleeker notebooks to market. --- Making the product thinner, lighter and sleeker is not the only thing that will help, it's mostly about the power and performance. And then comes the commercial aspects of it, will it be cheaper compared to ARM based products, and then comes Business models, whether intel keeps their OEM's tied to their trends or give the flex to add their own stuff on it.

"...or should I say MacBook Air clones with a Windows operating system." is an unfair statement. Various brands introduced thin laptop computer long before MacBook Air came to the market. A lot of high end Windows based PC from Sony, Fujitsu and Toshiba are lighter than MacBook Air. Just over the weekend, I have stopped by Microsoft shop to check out various PC. There are various impressive notebook computer although I have hard time differentiating ultrabook from regular notebook computer. A PC of 2.2 lbs with full HD screen is an ultrabook or is just a notebook computer. I have seen another PC which is comparable to 11" MacBook Air. It costs $100 less. The industry design is impressive and the choice of material is perfect. With the experience, I believe, for Ultrabook to be successful, better differentiators have to be introduced. Light weight and long battery life are just some of those. Consumers are looking for more.

It would be keyboard, performance and industry standard software. The line is certainly thinning. I'm anxious to see how the "instant on" really works. That feature has been promised for a very long time. I've yet to see it on a Windows device.
