Lance Whitney for CNET:
>As other vendors try to mimic Apple’s model by introducing their own lightweight laptops, the ultrabook field stands to get increasingly crowded.

Here’s the question I have: why is that every time Apple launches a successful product “analysts” seek to shove that product into a new category?

The iPad is great, but the iPad is in a market of its own — that’s why we can look at sales of the other tablets without including the iPad.

No, no — the MacBook Air isn’t a laptop — it’s an Ultrabook…

Give me a break.

It’s like a defense attorney saying: “Hey, *I* know you are innocent. But I don’t know if *they* believe that.”
