Managed to submit a blank topic! Brilliant... 

Anyway, what I wanted to post is about the upcoming Acer ultrabook that packs a Geforce GT640m (Kepler) descrete graphics card. Apparently this will run BF3 at 1366x768 in 'Ultra' quality. Pretty impressive for a 2cm thick ultrabook.

Who here would want to get a gaming ultrabook?

I would, had two acers just over a year, and a half now

Used to have the same attitude gjm had, but that changed with the build quality/materials on the new Timeline series

pretty much as reliable as the next brand. In saying that, I wouldn't touch Dell anymore. Mostly due to seeing how many fail at my old work!

yeah, thats the problem if you let your brand slip. Even if you get better you still have to convince everyone that you are no longer crap
