Neither, I'd get a tablet with attachable keyboard.

Here is an example of the two choices:

Ultrabook: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312457

Please post why you'd choose it. I'm leaning towards the laptop, because I just can't convince myself that the touchscreen and longer battery life is worth it. I mostly use my current laptop while it's plugged in.

I have a gaming quality PC and a iPad.

I guess the ultrabook would bridge some sort of gap.....or something, but I'd get a laptop that can handle light gaming at least.

Ultrabooks do not appeal to me at all. Maybe as a gift to my aunt who is technology adverse, but not for my personal use.

If I already had a powerful desktop, I would go for the ultrabook.

Personally, I'd avoid Lenovo products for the near future.

Depends on the laptop and ultrabook in question. The Haswell Macbook Airs are sexy. Chances are if I'm on the go, I don't need ultimate gaming performance.

I don't understand the difference.

I prefer Ultrabooks but I would never buy one without all-flash storage (unless I had the ability to replace the internal hard drive), and at this time I would not buy an Ultrabook without a Haswell CPU. The touchscreen is a nice plus but I don't need it.

I don't really care about the touch screen, so I guess 'ultrabooks' wouldn't really matter to me. Laptops nowadays are really light anyway.

Between those two i'd definitely grab the ultra book. The CPU is nearly as powerful after turboboost and it's $200 cheaper and it comes with a free tablet, doubt I'd use the touchscreen much but it also has that going for it.
