lose nothing IN TRANSLATION

A lot of discussion was put into whether the base should greatly expand the capabilities (and also size and weight) of the Ultrabook when attached:  should it offer more IO ports, double the battery life, boost the performance, provide a wi-fi boost?  In the end, the right decision was a "what you see is what you get" approach.  When you detach the keyboard and trackpad, that is precisely what you leave behind...the rest of the experience remains perfectly intact.  I think this was a smart move.  Instead of offloading performance to a detachable peice of the system, more effort was placed into packing that performance into the space behind the screen.
