1600 x 900 res good, 1366 x 768 res bad. Ultrabooks are supposed to be better so we will see.

Larger screen, lightweight, and far below the 1000$ mark. Great! (not really for those looking for ultraportability)

Hopefully it still comes with an SSD!

Someone please help me understand. Understand why these ultrabook's are "better" then the netbook's. Ultrabooks are very portable and fast but for $1000+ yikes! I'de never spend $1000+ on a computer for the sake of portability.
