ultrabook

noun; derivation
A notebook PC that is thinner than 0.8 inches, has Flash memory, can be turned on instantly, is always connected and has a battery life of longer than eight hours. The emphasis is given on the fact that it is surprisingly thinner than a normal notebook, but its performance is either compatible or superior than that of a notebook.
 
Down the road, analysts believe ultrabooks will have touch screens and will be detachable from their keyboards, further blurring the line between the PC and tablet.
Etymology : Affixation done by adding the prefix "ultra" to "book". The term originally came from Intel, which came up with its "Ultrabook" model. But now the term is generally used to refer to super-thin laptops manufactured by other companies as well, like Apple's MacBook Air.
