Very meh. I want a notebook with Ultrabook dimensions, a proper quad-core processor and a 650m gddr5 version minimum for less than $1,500. Medium gaming, grat everything else. You can keep the touch screen, thanks.

Hey, they gotta "raise the bar". Gotta admit though, touch screen is slightly less annoying than a track pad if you really don't have space for a mouse and it is not like ultra books were ever a budget item.

I would ditch the touch-screen and voice-command.
Fingerprints on a display I use for work or reading bug the heck out of me and speaking to a computer is nowhere near as fast and accurate as keyboard+mouse... but it may be slightly better than on-screen keyboards for tablets - at least for people who do not feel icky about talking to computers.

Uhm, why doesn't intel just spell it out and say you have to use Haswell? Its all arbitrary anyways, its just a small laptop.

I bet Microsoft had something to do with the touch screen requirements, thinking that more touch screens means more metro use.
