Since not all of configurations will meet Intel&rsquo;s requirements for the &ldquo;Ultrabook&rdquo; moniker, those that don&rsquo;t will be called Sleekbooks."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1336677022.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Thin is in!&nbsp; Extremely thin and portable laptops are not a new thing, but the designs are getting better, and they are showing fewer compromises.&nbsp; What I like is that the prices are starting to come down even further, reaching into the mainstream laptop range.&nbsp; Decades ago, getting a laptop that was 4 pounds or under cost you the mortgage on your home, several body parts, your first born and that piece of cake you were saving in the refrigerator.&nbsp; $599 sounds like a much better price, meaning that more people can get access to better hardware!</p>
