two and a half geeks hahahahahha ok funny. Yea i agree with you guys i think  intel gained some points with its medfield which was a nice strike because intel's processors were just too power hungry. I think someone had dial up internet connection 7 secs response after the question  :) lol joke... "yea yea go ahead jump" "no no no i just saying" O_-

pretty interesting and funny webcast which makes people enjoy it more.thanks you guys and good job.Nice highlights :)

another great vidcast and thoroughly enjoyable to watch a always.Lots of highlight for me in this episode that certainly spark my interest are the MSI GPU dock for ultrabooks seems innovative ..and that Idea pad yoga with that hinge sure seems to be flexible an unique..Pretty sure one of the highlites for me too is the AMD TRinity being able to perform so well at 17W and the competition with ultrabooks is sure to be very hot this year..sure looking forward to 2012 withe SB -E series and what Piledriving cores are going to be able to do..  yep lots of choices for ultrabooks and SSD prices are most likely to fall

.gotta love the cameos & family style walk-ons ...maybe Bella can make a cameo and 'hunt' for some Easter Eggs in a future episode ?

Nice broadcast :) @eunoia I know what you mean Dave/Marco are being watched lol.

I am very excited for AMD's trinity APU and hope that it brings the costs for those sweet ultrabooks in line with educations needs.

Good luck to everyone gunning for the sweet hardware being given away :)

"I never miss an episode. Cool to see Dave's energy in regards to CES 2012. The most exciting things about CES for me were the Z77 boards and some new cases. I also liked the Ultra Wide 21:9 Vizio TV (2,560x1,080), I would hope, but not counting on it, to be available in a 32" size in the near future and AMD, Nvidia and many game companies would have support for the format or resolution (with one connector/ Display port or DVI)."

Just joined the site and started watching these videos and they are GREAT!! I love how you guys talk about the details that any end user needs to know before making a purchase.  Please review the Acer Aspire Ultrabook and compare that to the Zenbook ( to me the Asus ultrabook sounds the like the best ultrabook available on the market)

Congrats! Hope you did well.

Sounds like you guys had a really good time out there. So much to see so little time. Must be like a kid in a candy store!

They should have another one in six months on the east coast for those of us back east!

Agree I would love to see a show in NY or MA that regular people like us could attend (or be brought as guests to by people in the business :P)
