    Your daughter has been seriously misinformed in her dreams. Tablets will eventually get there though.

    Also I would not get your daughter the ultrabook, I would get a macbook air if size is a concern. That ultrabook is not a mature product with any software support at all, her productivity will shoot down with something like that.

    The issue with Tablets that acts like a laptop is the interface and how it must interface with the software properly to make it useful. Intel is fast tracking by making the hardware first, but watch for the software to fall flat on their face.
