Galaxy Note 10.1 could Challenge ipad?

Galaxy Note 10.1, the new tablet made by Samsung had announced this week, is attempt to chip away at the market dominance of ipad. Apple sold 28.8 million iPads in the first six months of this year to hold 64.4 percent of tablet market in the world, and Samsung sold only 4.4million to take less than 10percent market share. The new released Galaxy note 10.1 had be inspired high hopes to challenge Apple’s iPad.

Galaxy Note 10.1 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1:
Price: $499 for 16GB and $549 for 32GB
10.1inch screen with 1280 by 800   pixels resolution
 quad-core processor with 1.4 GHz clock   speeds 2GB Ram         
1.3 pounds weight
 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front facing camera 
 9 hours battery life  
Operating System: Android 4.0

The new iPad:
iPad sizePrice: $499 for 16GB and $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64 GB
9.7inch screen with 2048 by 1536 pixel
1.44 pounds weight 
5-megapixel camera on back and a low-resolution camera on front 
10 hours battery life
Operating System: iOS

   Besides being slightly larger than the 9.7-inch iPad, the 10.1-inch Samsung model has other differentiating factors including a stylus-based note taking and sketching function and screen split feature that allows users simultaneously to use two different apps side-by-side. And this would be the most attractive new feature of the one.
  Starting at $499, Samsung's base Note 10.1 model seems a reasonable enough buy when you factor in the addition of the S-Pen, PS Touch, Exynos 4 processor and 16GB of storage. However, until you take a glance at other Android tablets like ASUS' Transformer Infinity Pad TF700, which boasts a crisper 1,920 x 1,200 display, double the storage (32GB) and a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU. The Galaxy Note 10.1 was just so-so. And compare with ipad, Apple's iOS ecosystem is where most consumers will instinctively want to it. Moreover, 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display with the same price $499, that would be easy to make the choice for us.

MacBook or ultrabook?That is a question!

Ultrabook VS macbook
  If you are planning to buy a new laptop, you must meet the hard choices: MacBook or ultrabook. I have struggle with this problem too. However, ultrabook only is the quantity winner and MacBook is the substantial laptop king of this year.
 what’s ultrabook? To be honest, i have no idea about what is ultrabook, so let’s get more info about this new conception. Ultrabook is a term intel coined to describe ultraportable laptops that meet a certain set of guidelines. These machines are less than .8 inches thick and use either a solid state drive (or a cache of flash memory) to boot windows fast and wake from sleep almost instantly. You should also expect at least 5 hours of battery life. The goal: to make notebooks as responsive as tablets.
 Today’s ultrabook are very similar to the MacBook in terms of constraction and design, very similar.
Similar: weight, battery life, hardware and performance, touchpad
    The 13-inch MacBook air goes for three pounds and measures 0.7 inches thick, while the new ultrabooks weigh around 2.9-3 pounds and measure 0.6-0.7 inches in depth. It’s not identical, but it’s pretty darn close.
   Both the MacBook air and the new ultrabooks are intended to impress in terms of autonomy and, without any exception, they do. Apple’s 13-incher can go for around six hours between charges, while the new ultrabooks are pretty much all there or thereabouts, with estimated autonomies of between five and a half hours (the asus ux21) and six and a half hours (the lenovo u300s and the toshiba z830).
    With a few tiny exceptions, which we are going to detail a bit later, the MacBook air and the ultrabooks are equally strong and snappy. Apple’s laptop is powered by a 1.7 ghz intel core i5 processor and features 4 gb of ram, as well as a 128 gb ssd, which is the exact specification of the asus ux31 and is ever so slightly different than the u300s’s tech specs.
The large glass touchpad featured by the MacBook air was a first a while back, but is standard on today’s ultrabooks.
Defferences: keyboard, screens, hardware and performance,software
  Even though the new ultrabooks come with pretty decent, accurate and comfortable keyboards of their own, the MacBook air still holds a big advantage in this area. Apple’s keyboard is the only one backlit and that can make a difference in a battle so tight.
  The air sports a beautiful 13.3-inch display with 1440 x 900 pixels resolution, which, even though it’s glossy, is much better than the ones featured by the lenovo u300s or the samsung series 9. on the other hand, the asus ux31 comes with a higher-resolution 1600 x 900 pixels screen and if you want the better overall image quality, this is the way to go.
As we already mentioned, there are a few slight differences in terms of performance between the air and some of today’s ultrabooks. The acer s3, for example, only comes with a 20 gb ssd, while the standard version of the toshiba z830 is powered by a slower 1.4 ghz intel core i3 processor.
  The MacBook air runs the terrific mac OS 10.7 lion, while all the other ultrabooks are windows-based. That’s a very important difference, but it would take us a couple of days to clearly determine which of the two operating systems is better, so for the time being we will call it a tie…

   In spite of this, which one is better is up to you. As for me, ultrabook seems more atrractive than then expensive MacBook. Ultrabook offers far better value for money than MacBook .the 13-inch air costs a somewhat steep $1,299, you can pick up an ultrabook like the toshiba portege z835 (pictured) for as little as $799. it’s the lightest ultrabook yet at just 2.4 pounds and lasts nearly 7 hours on a charge. It’s core i3 processor and 128gb solid state drive aren’t as fast as the air, but you get good performance for the money. Moreover, ultrabook offer more choices than mac, 13 inchs is the sweet spot for ultrabook, but you also could choose the other size you like. And for mac, with forever size and design……..
  Finally, I found a comparison of mainstream ultrabook, put up here for your reference.
