What is not so good about Ultrabooks
While portability is its USP, manufacturers are now taking some liberties with the size and weight, especially with the 14 inch models. So now you have weights of above 2 kg (like in the Dell XPS 14) and thickness that is closer to the 1-inch mark. It is still the slimmest of the notebooks, but there is too much variation out there for our liking. Even cheap feature phones now have 5MP cameras, but it is hard to find an Ultrabook or notebook that has even a 2MP webcam. Why computers still like to underperform in this aspect is anybody’s guess. While Ultrabooks make for good entertainment devices, it wouldn’t be all that comfortable to use them for serious gaming. Their keyboards are not that well spaced out and hardcore gamers might not be all that impressed. The biggest drawback at the moment for Ultrabooks is their value for money. There are no Ultrabooks available under 50,000 and the really good ones will cost at least 50 per cent more. They have placed themselves as high-end devices and will not gain mass acceptance until the prices drop substantially.
