Next Generation Ultrabooks are Tablets with Keyboards
The first round of Ultrabooks have been officially announced at the IFA 2011 last week. These new laptops are very thin and still run on the latest IntelCore i7 CPUs and offer decent battery life. If the price will be under $1,000 is still not sure. The first wave of Ultrabooks might just be a test as manufacturers are limiting the volume to 50,000. In the meantime Intel already shows where Ultrabooks are going: Tablets. Basically there will be Ultrabooks that feature a convertible design. This is nothing new. There are conventional laptops with a twisting touchscreen. The difference is in the measurements and price. The convertible Ultrabooks are still supposed to be very thin.
Ultrabooks are aimed at competing with the MacBook Air. I do not think that we will see a MacBook Air with a touchscreen though from Apple.

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.
