Hmmm, I wonder what Ultrabook makers will do, put smaller batteries in their Ultrabooks or give us double the battery life…
Most likely both.
They’ll reduce the size of the battery such that it’s cheaper for them, but gets slightly longer operation.
Laptops aren’t exactly selling like hotcakes… Also, prices for these premium technologies are going to outweight a laptop’s usefulness even with a 50% processor power reduction… the $300 - $400 per laptop (by the time etail/retail markup gets in the way) in increased costs outweight the power savings.
Still pretty crappy probably when we compare it to Trinity, but a pretty big jump up for Intel integrated graphics.
So now both sides will have IGPs approaching a GT640/GTX650 in terms of gaming power?

Mine’s due for renewal in about 6 months
Got some bits hanging off … the quad core CPU gets too hot to sit on your lap, and the video card turned out to be absolutely useless for anything, except quake 3 at 540p :p.
Might opt for one of those gorgeous Asus Ultrabooks …
The lack of an optical drive annoys me, but not enough to dissuade me from buying a proper work laptop that weighs less than 1.4KG’s
I’d be glad to shave 100g’s off the weight, and still end up with an extra 2hrs of battery life
