If you own both a laptop and a tablet device like an iPad, it’s a familiar tension: you want to be able to use your tablet for everything because it’s so sleek, so light, so small…but you crave that familiar feeling of using an actual computer. Which one should you take on business trips, vacations or simply cart around the office?
It was only a matter of time before there was an effort to bridge the gap between these two devices. Last year, Intel inspired a new line of Ultrabooks, super-sleek laptops (20 mm thick and under two pounds) that boast “tablet-like features.” Of course we’ve seen similar products from Apple (the MacBook Air) and Dell (the Adamo), but their price points were significantly higher than the Ultrabooks, which started off at about $1,000 in 2011 and have come down to as low as $799 for some models. It’s believed that they could come down to $599 by 2013.
