After seeing market success with 11-inch and 13-inch ultrabooks (ultra-compact notebooks), Acer began working on a new, larger 15-inch ultrabook, which it plans to sell at a price-point of US $699. According to sources, Pegatron is the upstream ODM behind this model. Acer's current ultrabooks are manufactured on contract by Wistron. The sales of ultrabooks are expected to reach 250,000-300,000 units by the end of this year. Pegatron's total notebook shipments to reach 18.99 million units by the end of this year, with an annual growth of 22%, which will make it the fourth largest ODM by volume.

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.
