Hybrid Windows 8 tablets: The reason Ultrabooks will struggle to take off

Parks Associates tackles the issue with the self-explanatory ‘Ultrabooks, Laptops and Tablets: Complements or Substitutes’ report, while PC World's Tony Bradley has also questioned if buying a Windows 8 Ultrabook is really such a smart move.

After all, who wants to pay up to $2,000 for an Ultrabook when you can halve that on a hybrid Windows 8 tablet which can function as a laptop or tablet, offers reasonable specs (Dell's Envy x2, for instance, has a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Clover Trail processor), Office compatibility, similar battery life and the same instant-on power? Judging by some research figures, not that many people.

From the article, "Hybrid Windows 8 tablets: The reason Ultrabooks will struggle to take off" by Doug Drinkwater.
