By the way, Apple has the largest marketplace for apps, although Android is catching up quickly.

If your lifestyle is not as demanding and you are not a person who needs everything here and now, but you still like to have the high quality good stuff then the Ultrabook might be more your style.  The Ultrabook is right in the middle.  It is lightweight, portable, has a real keyboard, and has MS Windows.  The Ultrabook is a mobile laptop that includes processing capability and features that would normally only be found on larger laptops and desktops. Its size (11.1” – 13”) enables ease of portability. It features Rapid Start (which enables it to resume from hibernate within 7 seconds), Smart Connect (which gives alerts and notifications), long lasting battery life, and mainstream processing performance.

For those that are always looking toward the future there is something for you too. Chromebooks are for people who need their files stored in the cloud, which is perfect if you are always on the go because you will always have the latest updated file right at your fingertips.  Chromebooks are designed to get better automatic updates such as updates in offline apps.

    Nice article. Good to see posts that understand different people need different features in their technology. Regardless of what Apple’s exceptional marking department may want us to think, we don’t all need an iPad. Some of us want a keyboard. Some of us want an ultra-portable.
