Love this idea, and understand the concept of an ultrabook, however in this case it feels like a glaring ommission to not have some form of DVD drive on board.

I have this Ultrabook and I gotta say the vent in the back of itnis quite stupid. as you open the laptop up the screen covers the vent.

I bought one. Very nice to use and quite lightweight considering its construction. The backlit keyboard is a bonus...I see in the comments here somebody beleives the lack of a dvd or optical drive is a minus...seriously???? Who uses optical drives these days...?

I agree with Mike below. I have used this ultra book and the lack of an optical drive is not relevant in these days of cloud computing. There is a Toshiba Cloud TV service and I hope the developers in Tokyo and Germany for Toshiba, create suitable interoperability with this cloud system within the next 2 years at least.

clearly you don't understand the concept of an ultrabook at all.

I think the screen serves more as a diversion for the heat to go up (along the screen) rather than blowing heat directly horizontal from the back.

They are marketing this partially for watching movies, given the screen aspect ratio, which gives reason to expect a dvd drive.
