Intel announced at the Computex 2011 in May a new laptopconcept dubbed Ultrabook. The Ultrabook laptops are going to be thin, light and priced under $1,000. An Ultrabook is less than 20mm (0.8 inch) thick and runs on Intel 2nd generation Core CPUs. Ultrabooks are clearly aimed at competing with the MacBook Air.
Ultrabooks are scheduled for the Holiday shopping season, but the race is already on to be first to the market with an Ultrabook. The Asus UX21 Ultrabook is supposed to come in September. Today Digitimes reports that HP is supposed to be releasing their Ultrabooks earlier, beating all branded notebook vendors.
HP is supposed to release two or more Ultrabooks using the Core i7-2677M (1.8Ghz) and i7-2637M (1.7Ghz) dual-core CPUs. Foxconn is reportedly already shipping Ultrabooks to HP.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
