Engineering is still working on some little glitches. Wifi is too slow to reconnect after boot and lots of us are still having a little trouble with the touchpad capturing touches and shifting focus around. All tracked on Launchpad for the interested.
Beyond the slick hardware and the Ubuntu drivers (both quite nice) the project is working on chef recipes for common development and testing environments to make it easy to get into and out of them and set up "microclouds" on the ultrabook. I'm poking at this and I'll let you know how it goes.
valentina here has so far been quite nice for my Chrome, Thunderbird, and Virtual Box needs as I study how to read packets in this year's SANS course.
ETA: Seems I need to learn some Chef first. I'll start here once I get done with my packet mangling for the day.
