It matters. More than your making it out to be right now atleast. Couple considerations that I have not seen mentioned just yet. When you buy hardware in a business, you need to carefully look at your investment, this has all kinds of implications...

- Total cost of ownership vs initial cost - it is not simply about the upfront cost. You cannot even perform this very simple and crucial analysis because the hardware you originally suggested is not even out yet. How do you know you won't buy this Lenovo Yoga (or anything else for that matter) and it doesn't have all kinds of hardware/software issues costing you money in downtime, lost productivity, tech/troubleshooting instead of solid operational time in the hands of an employee?
- It is not "just hardware". Software is as important if not MORE important in this discussion. Software is what makes the hardware work and run. Also, the hardware's capability is limited by whatever software is able to be run on it as well as how stable that software offering is. This is why the iPad is such a great product and Apple protects the app ecosystem soo tightly like hawks... they don't want the quality to dip and they understand the concept I am explaining to you now.
- Your comments and how caliously it seems your willing to just jump into anything that *might* show you a "dream hardware feature set" your looking for shows me you are setting yourself up to have a much more expensive experience than your anticipating (that total cost of ownership I mentioned)

Asus Zenbooks are great. MacBook Air is also good.

I'm ready to get a new ultrabook, I've never had a mac machine - but love my iphone and ipad. I looked at the macbook air this weekend - and believe I will get one... I'm just uneasy as I have always had PC based machines
