Ultrabook-MacBook Air clone hybrids spotted in China

Ultrabook-MacBook Air clone hybrids spotted in China

Ultrabooks are finally starting to take hold in the PC market, while the original MacBook Air remains as popular as ever. What's an unscrupulous Shenzhen manufacturer to do? Make the best of both worlds, obviously.

Brydge turns your iPad into a little MacBook Air

Brydge turns your iPad into a little MacBook Air

There's certainly nothing new about a keyboard case for the iPad. In fact, not too long ago Logitech unveiled its own similar product called the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover. We've already reviewed the product and found it to be very nice. A new product has turned up on Kickstarter called the Brydge and at least to my eyes it's a much more attractive and interesting product.

Ultrabooks have undoubtedly been the star of CES 2012 this week - heck, we counted up the top contenders and found almost a dozen - but the slimline notebooks' challenge is more than just shedding pounds and squeezing in as big a display as possible. For all Intel's hard work pushing the trademark, and its manufacturer partners' efforts coming up with their own slimline machines, the biggest threat to ultrabook success wasn't even shown at CES. Apple's MacBook Air.

While most Ultrabooks, they note, are priced up and above $1000, with only a few sitting below that mark, the MacBook Air still has a major edge over any competitor already released or released in early 2012. At prices between $999 and $1,599 for the newest model and competing Windows-based machines not nearly as pretty or perfect, you'd better bet your lunch he's right.
