Apple's answer to Windows 8 ultrabooks: a $799 MacBook Air?

Windows 8 is coming, and Microsoft isn't the only company hoping that its newest operating system is a hit with consumers.

Chip giant Intel is betting big on ultrabooks -- thin, lightweight laptops similar to the MacBook Air -- and is investing big bucks to ensure that a slew of them hit store shelves as soon as Windows 8 is released later this year. The good news for consumers on a budget: some of those ultrabooks could cost as little as $699 if manufacturers have their way.
