You don't know much about Ultrabook standards. This standard is controlled by Intel, not Microsoft. The standard also goes beyond physical size and weight. This is also why you will never see an AMD Ultrabook. AMD does not license the technology from Intel to make an Ultrabook. Its a name and numbers game...

I used to sell a ton of refurbished notebooks from various manufacturers and from my experience the demand in laptops and portables was from intel. What our customers told us is that the battery doesn't drain as fast on Intel platforms compared to amd which in ultrabook and laprops is the biggest pro/con. Given the power leak from usb interface is fixed. I mean if you want to be stuck to a cord buy AMD.

Just about to retire my almost 9 year old Zenbook I7/SSD. Almost been running 24h every day since I got it, been everywhere and still looks fresh. Just gotten slow. An amazing machine.
