No, it was Apple. Intel are scene-stealing whores.
PC not so much(but i think it was brilliant plan to switch the naming from macintosh to mac)
Yes, the creators of the personal computer sure didn't revolutionize squat¡ Not even going to try to process the name part.
ultrabook definition does not depend upon its physical appearance but its capabilities…
Yes, and that rules out the Surface.
have you ever seen someone hold one up like a book with the hinge vertical? no :)
And yet you dismiss the concept of using a laptop on one's lap…
and I think you are confused that the surface is not a typical tablet, it does not use its usb to charge like a phone would, it has a separate charging point like all laptops and ultrabooks would.
Making it the worst of both worlds.
Then it's not an ultrabook! I'm not in it for personal preference, I'm in it for physical possibility.
