  • News: Everything You Need to Know About Ultrabooks

    The Ultrabook, a new class of ultraportable laptops defined by Intel, has been making waves lately as the next major step in laptop design. These ultraslim and lightweight laptops promise to combine the conveniences of tablets with the functionality of larger notebooks. If Intel and Ultrabook manufacturers can get the design and technology right, Windows users may finally have relatively affordable and varied alternatives to the reigning ultrathin laptop, Apple's MacBook Air. In addition to the much thinner and lighter laptops we'll see this fall, you can expect combo devices with sliding or removable multitouch screens for true all-in-one versatility.

  • Video: Video: Intel Ultrabooks run Sandy Bridge-based processors

    Promised in time for Christmas Intel pushed Ultrabooks at its developer forum in San Francisco last week. Ultrabook is an Intel trademarked name for systems that meet certain specifications for thickness, battery life and processing power for example. They're designed for people who want more functionality than a tablet, but still need something light and fast. So these systems are going to be based on the Sandy Bridge processor. Ultrabooks will come from a number of manufacturers including Toshiba, Acer, Asus and others. Intel has laid out its plan for processor upgrades for ultrabooks in the next few years. So next year we're going to be introducing Ivy Bridge into the market and that's the same basic architecture that we have on Sandy Bridge today but it's going to (unintelligable) to our 22nm process with those really cool 3D transistors that you may have heard about already. And even with Ivy Bridge coming next year, Intel is already looking to 2013 and the introduction of a new chip that will be even more power efficient.
