Microsoft Surface blurs boundary between tablet and ultrabook
Posted By: Dennis - Source: Web
I was hoping that someone would mention Asus when it comes to ultratabs.
With Microsoft and Asustek both having come out with tablet-like ultrabook designs that choose to adopt the new Ivy Bridge-based Core i7 processors, instead of processors from Clover Trail platform, Intel is unlikely to be able to demand its downstream partners follow its rules for separating the two product lines, the sources noted.
One thing is certain I will likely be getting an Ivy Bridge based ultratab when they come available and by any means necessary. (beg, borrow steal) This of course is assuming the mfg can:
a) provide good screen resolution
b) keep battery life in check
c) make it affordable
Sadly we are almost guaranteed that both a and b will not be met while c is left in the questionable category.
