Ultrabook Laptops coming this Holidays

Intel announces Ultrabook laptop concept at the COMPUTEX 2011.

Intel announced today at the Computex 2011 a new laptop concept 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 based on these chips will be available for the 2011 winter holiday shopping season and include the UX21, ASUS Ultrabook. The Ultrabook brings new wind into the competition of Windows laptops with Apple MacBooks.

Intel also talked about the next generation Core CPUs dubbed Ivy Bridge, which is scheduled for availability in systems in the first half of 2012. Laptops based on Ivy Bridge will bring improved power efficiency, smart visual performance, increased responsiveness and enhanced security. Ivy Bridge is the first high-volume chip based on Intel's 22 nanometer (nm) manufacturing technology that uses a revolutionary 3-D transistor design called Tri-Gate announced in May. Maloney also highlighted complementary USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt technologies which are part of Intel's ongoing work to drive the PC platform forward.

Intel also outlines what comes in 2013. Following Ivy Bridge, planned 2013 products codenamed Haswell are the third step toward achieving the Ultrabook and reinventing the capabilities of the laptop in ultra thin and light, responsive and more secure designs. With "Haswell," Intel will change the mainstream laptop thermal design point by reducing the microprocessor power to half of today's design point.
