Ultrabook makers are reportedly struggling to reach the sub-$799 prices sought by Intel (INTC) by Q3, due to the high cost of components such as processors and solid-state drives. It has also been reported ultrabook makers are facing a metal chassis shortage, thanks to Apple's hoarding of supplies. Demand for the MacBook Air-like ultrabooks has underwhelmed thus far, and Intel is counting on lower prices and Windows 8's arrival to stoke demand.
