What’s an Ultrabook?
The tech-savvy consumer might know Ultrabooks as thin and pricey Windows laptops, perhaps the Intel and Microsoft answer to the popular Macbook Air. While the latter point is debatable, there is actually a hard and fast standard set by Intel for Ultrabooks. While that standard, which relates to device thinness and performance, is not a hard definition, it should provide consumers an idea of what one can expect from any Ultrabook, be it made by Lenovo, Acer, Samsung, ASUS, or any other Microsoft and Intel hardware partner.
This convoluted answer to a seemingly simple question is perhaps why many consumers have trouble discerning Ultrabooks from the rest. And it’s also why NotebookReview is taking a closer look at the emerging product category in an Ultrabook special report, to not only define the Ultrabook for weary consumers, but also present informed Ultrabook buying advice for those in the market for a new laptop PC.
Join the experts at NBR as they look at the Ultrabook standard, how its changed, and what it means for the future of Windows laptops.
