Who's The Thinnest in the Land?

"Intel’s ultrabooks have well and truly arrived at IFA this week, with Acer, Lenovo and Toshiba revealing their entries into the new category of super-skinny laptop. The Aspire S3, IdeaPad U300s, and Portege Z830 all have their subtle differences, but at their core, they’re machines designed for maximum portability with a minimal corresponding sacrifice in utility. Apple’s MacBook Air is the gold standard in this respect, so we thought it worthwhile to see how well it stacked up against the Windows-equipped newcomers."

Not much to add to this article, as it's physical size comparisons between a bunch of ultrabooks. Of course, the MacBook Air is still sitting atop the (size) pedestal, waiting for challengers. Some very nice offerings for Windows users! Take a peek at the galleries and let us know what you think!

What's the "Perfect" Tablet Size for You?

"Over the weekend, news leaked of Apple preparing a larger iPod Touch to compete with low end tablets that offer a smaller screen size than the iPad's 10" display. This comes after Steve Jobs has stated a that a 7" tablet isn't the same as a true tablet in a 10" model. Add to that the fact that Samsung has a 10" tablet arriving very soon in the next generation of the Galaxy Tab. It was an inevitable upgrade, but it has me wondering what the "perfect size" for a tablet PC really is. Do companies see the 10" profile being the only answer or are they simply trying to gauge the perfect approach for consumers."

Apple's flat out refusal to make a 7 inch iPad is typical of their "We have the perfect product for you as long as you like it in this size, this colour, and with these features" approach. But if they release a bigger iPod Touch, well, that solves the problem of them not having a bigger iPad yet not having to back-peddle on their statements. I for one would love to see a bigger iPod Touch - 5 inches would be excellent I think.

I'm a huge fan of my iPod touch - we have two in our house now - largely because it's such an amazing educational tool for my 18 month old son Logan. We're purposefully keeping him away from TV and computer use, but with limited iPod Touch use (I'd guess less than 30 minutes per day) he's learnings letters, numbers, shapes, colours, and how to navigate a user interface.

So, survey time! What's your ideal tablet/slate screen size?
