But the CD/DVD drive flies in the face of an ultrabook. Given the number of times I need that drive I think my decision to use some 30 buck USB DVDRW is paying off in less to carry around.
Why the note about RAM? The office just supplied a new laptop and for 120 bucks popped 16GB ram after delivery. I know some folk are loathe to do that after the fact. Tell more.
Alright, so I've raised my budget (around 800-900$) and have some features I know I want:
High resolution (I get headaches easy from poor res computers)
at LEAST 6 GB RAM
at least 500 GB HD
I would also really like a touch screen, but I'm starting to wonder whether or not they are really worth the extra money?
I'm looking at a Sony Vaio T series
But I've read some less than stellar reviews about this ultrabook.
