is a new kind of laptop marketed by Intel, one the leading manufacturers of computer processors. Intel seeks to market the ultrabook as the solution between tablet computers and small laptops. What‘s interesting here is that it has to follow specific criteria in order to be an ultrabook. If it‘s not followed, then it‘s not an ultrabook - simple as that. This is going to make it easier for buyers when choosing the laptops they want to buy.
Thin An ultrabook should have a maximum thickness of 21mm. Ultrabooks released right now range around 16-18mm thick, so there might be even thinner models in the future.
Lightweight Since Intel seeks to bridge laptops and tablet computers, an ultrabook should also be lightweight. As such, an ultrabook should have a maximum weight of 1.4 kilograms, or 3.1 pounds.
Screen size Ultrabooks seek to be slim, portable and mobile, so screen size needs to be trimmed down. An ultrabook should only come in 11 or 13 inch screens. Anything smaller than 11 inches, then it‘s considered a netbook. Anything bigger than 13 inches, then it‘s a normal laptop.
An ultrabook doesn‘t have a disc drive. This allows them to become thin and lightweight. This makes them similar to netbooks - but the similarities end there. Ultrabooks seek to be powerful and fast too. They have Intel processors of at least 1.6 GHz. Some recently launched ultrabooks have 1.7 GHz, while some have 1.4 GHz. But all ultrabooks have at least 4 GB of RAM, giving users plenty of room for multitasking. An Intel Core processor is also a standard among ultrabooks. So is having at least 5 hours of battery life. They should also be able to boot up and restart very quickly. Another thing that Intel states is that an ultrabook should be affordable. It should under be $1,000 but this is more of a range instead of a strict guideline.
When you think about it, an ultrabook is one of the best investments you can make. If you‘re a Windows user, better sell your laptop for an ultrabook. That‘s because Intel plans to make the ultrabook even better in the future. It‘s actually speculated that ultrabooks will have touchscreen technology in the future. Now that‘s a real bridge between laptops and tablet computers. Sell your laptop now, and prepare for the future.
