Intel Focusing on Windows 8 Touchscreen Ultrabooks in 2012

Maybe if Intel charged less for their processors, the OEMs could reach the price easier. The more time they waste waiting for AMD to release Trinity, the more trouble they will be in the mobile and ultra mobile markets. Also I am surprised that neither amd or intel have tried an ARM processor for this segment yet.

Why? Rotate the screen, and it's a tablet, albeit a bit thick.

Knowledge is power, and you are weak.

Intel sells mobile "performance mainstream" chips for average of $120-130, because manufacturers buy millions rather than thousands and get heavy discounts. Apple ships 3 SKUs on the Macbook Airs yet ship 2-3 million. The 6 or so major PC manufacturers are probably playing so conservative with Ultrabook versions of their own, that they are paying near full list price.

No wonder there were rumors PC manufacturers having hard time pricing against the Macbook Air.

Aren't they using it in "laptop mode" though? I mean if you can remove the screen, sure, but then it's not an ultrabook...point was, touchscreen + normal laptop= what's the point?
Maybe finger drawing or something. idk, will have to see when it arrives.

Not too interested in a touch version of windows 8. I'm more excited to see a gesture based one, maybe something that uses a much smaller version of the kinect. Touch is great, but not in a laptop.

An ultrabook with touchscreen control can be a viable alternative to the Macbook Air. I know a person with a touchscreen Thinkpad and it seems very useful to have two forms of input complement each other.
