Windows 8 Ultrabooks to Go 100 Percent Touch

Against first impressions that touch notebooks would not catch on with customers, Microsoft has proved first impression to be wrong. Sales of touch enabled notebooks rose from 10% of sales at the start of the year to 30% in August.

The August share increase was due to "a good number of under-$500 Win 8 touch notebooks. I am increasingly optimistic that Touch will drive significant volumes this holiday."
