Having extensively played with an ultrabook and a MBA 11" I find myself wanting one instead of a "normal" laptop. Sure, I cannot run some modern games, but I can live with the trade off. Some of the more hardcore gamers who need gaming on the move might scorn at them, but at the rate the on die graphics card are improving, it will be no time before I can play my Call of Duty 10 and Battlefield 7 on an ultrabook.
