I wonder how many bloggers and journos are already using Ultrabooks at CES. It would be very interesting to walk through the press rooms and take a straw poll. If you’re reporting from CES 2013 and have 30 seconds, let us know what laptop you’re using and plug your website.

The upgrade from non-touch to Windows 8 touch is one you’ll see on a lot of models over the next year.

Order the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Touch today and you could be swiping and pinching your way through the holidays later this month.

Thanks to Lenovo I’ve got the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon here. It’s a high-end productivity and security-focused Ultrabook and the first Ultrabook I’ve tested with 3G capability.
