Unless you spend most of your work life away from the office, you’re probably not going to run 3ds Max on a notebook. Then again, some buyers are mobile as part of their professional lives and can't afford to put up with an Ultrabook's weaker processor.

We again see the new notebook’s noteworthy advantage in Visual Studio’s compilation time for Google Chrome.
