Quite frankly Ultrabooks were a good thing for the laptop industry, as it forced them to start looking at lower power consumption ideas without sacrificing as much power as you normally would in that situation, BECAUSE people would still compare them to full fledged laptops. Efficiency is becoming a big thing now, and most people aren't going to deal with power hungry machines anymore, but at the same time want to be able to do more when they're on the go.

And as a side note, I'm not saying the Macbook Air was shit. Aside from a few technical oversights in it's early days, it's a fine machine. It was just too expensive to warrant it's existence at the time, whether or not the "value" was appropriate for the service you got.
