I've looked at the other threads and my requirements are a bit different.
I want to spend as close to $1000 as possible but I don't need a lot of power.
I'll be running Outlook, Ms Word and Excel along with Chrome; and that is about it. But they will be running at the same time. I wont be using Media Center or Photoshop or gaming.
I want it to be as light and portable as possible with as long a battery life as possible.
As it is going to be running Win 8 a touch screen is probably going to a good idea.
Sounds like I'm describing a low end Ultrabook, right?
Has anybody got any experience with Ultrabooks in this area? I know as a class they aren't selling but I think it might be right for me.
