[citation][nom]zankuto[/nom]The HDD offerings seem a little tad small for those prices.[/citation]
Almost positive that it would be a SSD, so for those prices, it's about right. Also considering the CPUs, the form factor, and the design that went in to the chassis to dissipate the heat to keep things stable.

Just like the Razer Blade. Yes, the specs seem a bit weak for the price, but it's really not when you think about the quality of the laptop itself and design. Quality products come at a premium price. Of course you can get the specs of the Blade for less, but you won't get the aluminum body, multi-use LCD screen and 10 adaptive LCD keys.

I hope there will be some ultrabook with new AMD APUs. It would be much more powerful in graphics, games and some calculations.

I don't think you need a Core I7 for an ultrabook...
It is too overkill, if you'll do rendering and other stuff that would utilize the I7's prowess...

I'll stick with APU though...

Apple does not own the rights to ''making a thin laptop'' you know...

Can't really say much, the ultrabook is intel's baby. I don't think it'll let it's partners create "ultrabooks" that use AMD processors. At least i 'm sure they won't be funding it.

Sandy Bridge processors are APUs. I think you meant AMD's APUs?

Of course only integrated graphics will be used. The whole point of this form factor is portability.

Travelling all the time for work, I love my Samsung Series 9 ultrabook.

i may be reading it wrong, but 7mm is only 0.3 inches. Is is seriously going to be a third of an inch thick? That would make it half the thickness of a Macbook Air! Nuts.

To compete with the Air, they need the i7 - it helps keep the laptop futureproof and the IGP has more headroom.
If they can use AMD APU, things will get interesting!
