We didn't get a chance to do any real work on the demo model, but we were struck by the system's sleek, business-first looks and its svelte 2.45-pound, 0.63-inch thick design."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/h8Ae9EJp6J8&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/h8Ae9EJp6J8&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>It doesn't have the same "WOW" factor as the <a href="http://thisismynext.com/2011/09/14/asus-ux31-13-inch-ultrabook-hands-on-pictures/" target="_blank">Asus UX31</a>, but it's got all the right stuff on the inside (no mention of CPU though). I'm super excited about these Ultrabooks, but I'm a bit irked that in typical Windows OEM fashion, we're being shown things we can't buy for months. Apple has the right approach: announce something and have it on store shelves soon. Don't lose the buying impulse by making people wait months and months...</p>
