Intel believes devices based on its Ultrabook concept will eventually be able to capture 40 percent of the consumer laptop market. Aimed at checking the rampant growth of media tablets, ultrabooks will offer both the performance of mainstream laptops and tablet-like features in a thin and light form factor (that’s the plan, at least). To boot, ultrabooks will offer all this for less than $1,000. So the sub-$1,000 question is: How much longer before ultrabooks begin inundating the market?
Intel on Sunday updated its official price list with four new ultra-low voltage (ULV) chips, three of which are second-generation Core i parts, while the fourth is a Celeron. These power-efficient chips have a TDP of 17W, making them ideal for ultrathin laptops - or “ultrabooks” as Intel now likes to call them. Hit the jump for more.
