Hi ... I originally started a thread about the best long battery life ultrabook money could buy but I bought a Dell powerhouse that weighs 2.0kgs instead ...

I would love to use the ipad air as an ultrabook alternative but I don't think I can live without Windows (yeah call me an apple antagonist) ...

SO ... what is the (in decreasing order of importance)

1) lightest
2) cheapest
3) longest battery life

Touchscreen Haswell ultrabook under $1000 that money can buy?

Looking to get it during the pre Christmas sales :D

500 bucks would be nice :D

If you're considering an iPad Air have you thought about an ARM based Surface 2

I doubt you will find any Haswell based Ultrabook in NZ for $500-$1000 sorry

one of your requirements or budget will need to move
