By unveiling its new Ultrabooks, Intel Corporation has defined a complete new category in the field of thin and light mobile computers. The roadmap for this new no-compromise ultra-thin marvel running on Atom processor was first laid out at Computex 2011 by Intel’s Executive Vice-President Sean Maloney. Sean announced that this next generation product will combine the best performance in its class, fast responsiveness, and has expressed confidence that by the end of year 2012, forty percent of current laptop users will shift to the new Ultrabook.
Among its array of exciting features, the Ultrabook boasts of ultra-sleek and light design less than 0.8 inch thick, and are priced within $1,000. At Computex 2011, Intel has showcased its path-breaking launch product ASUS UX21 Ultrabook, and plans large-scale roll out of models based on the Ultrabook theme by the end of 2011.
In a market that is already crowded with netbooks, tablet PCs and Ultra-thin notebooks such as the Samsung 9000 Series, Macbook Air and the forthcoming Dell XPS 15Z, the Ultrabook will have to really outperform in order to create a space for itself. While the Macbook Air is presently the only device to seemingly integrate the notebook and tablet in one, and also boasts of a quick boot time and an app store, the Ultrabook scores over the Macbook with its spectacular performance and its below $1,000 price tag.
