How many of our CEans are planning to buy this machine? Do you think the price is justified? Also, is 'beats audio' that good?

Awesome one! Looks like Mac... A competitor for Apple? 😛
The only issue right now is the price, which will get down sooner! 😀

Yep, that's it. A macbook killer.

But you know what? I detest 'ultrabooks'. Way too expensive, and out-of-vogue in about a year. Me, I have a strong back, so I'll buy something a little thicker and more reliable.

I don't think it copies MBP. Apple's design philosophy may inspire others; but they simply can't afford to copy it. Apple's totally notorious for suing other companies so other manufacturers better stick to their own designs. Yes SSDs in laptops were popularized by the MacBooks. I really wonder whether people really want 'thin' gadgets. Apple also knows that they can control the markets. The move to exclude the optical drive was big one and it surprised many! Apple knows that other manufacturer will eventually follow the trend set by them.

Apple's evil.

One look at the keyboard makes me feel the same.

Anyway, in US it is available for $1400. Way too cheap than One Lakh Rupees.
