Ultrabook device specification and roadmap changes made to the IntelÂ®Coreâ„¢ processors are enabling this new breed of devices. Ultrabook systems carry thin and light with the best in performance, responsiveness, security and battery life â€“ filling the gap between desktop/laptop and tablet. We are reinventing the PC again. The new specification means significant changes to the hardware that goes inside these new portable devices An Ultrabook device is ultra-responsive and ultra-sleek.
Laptops are getting thinner and lighter, faster and sleeker, and booting up quicker than they did before. This isnâ€™t a revolution, but rather the continued evolution of a product that once had floppy drives and modem ports. Some companiesâ€™ devices have already hit the market, while others, including Dell, are expected to introduce models at very soon.
The Ultrabook is a multi-year evolution from Intel's perspective. It's going to begin as a pilot program with some Sandy Bridge systems this year, it'll ramp heavily next year with Ivy Bridge and be mainstream by the time Haswell arrives in 2013.An Ultrabook is a computer in a category of higher-end thin and lightweight ultraportable laptops, defined by a specification from Intel.
