    Just to give you an idea of how big an impact Intel's Ultrabook form-factor will have on the portable computing market, OEM major Acer's chairman JT Wang says that in 2012, just the second year of prominence of the platform, Ultrabooks will make up 25-35% of all notebook sales. In the first quarter since launch, Acer's Aspire S3 sold about 250,000-300,000 units. Despite uncertainty in the European market and slow sales expected in the US, Acer finds markets such as Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand and other Southeast Asia to be the prime-movers of growth for this platform.

    It's all about the price. Don't ask too much for them, and you'll empty your warehouses in an eye blink.

    Ultrabooks will be very popular if they don't fuck it up with a bunch of crapware

    Basically for those that don't feel like reading, I'm one sometimes, an very thin very light notebook with no optical drive, usually an SSD*, and good battery life.
