[citation][nom]de5_roy[/nom]i hope they succeed. i'd buy a $499 ultrabook if it was good enough.[/citation]
I think you misread the text you quoted: it says non-ultrabook models at $499. Ultrabooks will likely always be a high-priced commodity, I would imagine.
 

thank you.
i blame the number $499. :sleep: guess i didn't notice anything else after seeing that number. hopefully asus builds an ultra(net)book with ivb pentium, 30-40 gb ssd, 4 gb ram and 10" display.

I'd settle for a 13", $250 ultrabook that is capable of nothing but surfing the web. That's basically all my netbook does now. I would just like a larger screen.

Well, you could always buy Alienware M11x if you want a small but powerful laptop.

Every time I go out I only see like 2-3 variations of computers from ASUS anyway. :\
Are they planning to release one netbook, one notebook and one AIO PC per year or something?

I mean.. What's the point of shrinking your line if local retailers only have one or two different models from that manufacturer anyway?

There are more then 6 PC shops within a 20km radius where I live, nobody sells more than two or three variants of ASUS computers. :\

Normally where I live they push out the newest technology pretty fast, I mean hey we got the iPhone 4S before the rest of the world, right?

If that's not enough, Samsung was willing to create a whole new tablet PC JUST for the Australian market. Plus there's that Windows 7 Samsung tablet I've seen in-store that nobody seems to have heard of yet..

Im so interested in knowing more about the new gaming laptops from Asus. But I guess there is no more info, and that I really just have to take a chill pill, and try not to buy a laptop just yet..
