So I bought the new iPad but am quite unsatisfied with it. It just does not meet my standards for efficiency because of its lack of Flash (Can't even access certain homework websites) and a physical keyboard. And if I were to get a keyboard case for it, I might as well be getting a laptop in the first place.

I also gave up on my demands for a dedicated video card in a portable laptop. I might just get two laptops - one dedicated for productivity purposes and one dedicated for gaming (esp LAN events).

So I guess I'd primarily be looking at Ultrabooks here. The 11" Sager looks promising, too, though.

With the Ivy Bridge refresh, there should be some new Ultrabooks releasing soon, right? Could anyone link to any good laptops that will be coming out (not necessarily Ultrabooks)? I do not need the laptop THIS moment; I am perfectly fine with waiting two weeks for Ivy Bridge and the new batch of graphics cards.

My priorities:
1. Portability and aesthetics
2. Performance (Dedicated graphics would be a huge plus but is not necessary)
3. Resolution
