Ultrabooks to only ship in limited Volume in October

According to new report, manufacturers are not sure if Ultrabooks are going to be a sales success.

Several laptop manufactures including Toshiba, Acer, Asus and Lenovo have unveiled so called Ultrabooks. Ultrabooks is a new Intel platform that targets the Apple MacBook Air. Ultrabooks are very thin, light, powerful (Core i5/i7) and are supposed to sell for less than $1,000. This last bit is still not confirmed. The announced Ultrabooks have really sexy specifications. The Acer S3 for instance is only 13mm thick and offers a SSD option and Core i7 CPU choice. Digitimes reports though today that Ultrabook makers are limiting the initial production of Ultrabooks to 50,000 units. The manufacturers are testing the market first and also react to the still slow global economy.

On the other hand Apple is predicted to have the best Holiday Quarter in history. The company manages to lure consumers around the globe to buy their products despite a slow economy. If makers are not aggressively push Ultrabooks than this new laptop platform will disappear pretty quickly.
