Technology advances fast and presents us almost daily with new terms and concepts. One of them that is not so recent is the Ultrabook, Intel’s trademark.
An ultrabook is a category of portable computers designed to bridge the gap between high performance teblets and notebooks. They have far superior performance to tablets and better portability than high-end notebooks.
The first ultrabooks were created by Intel in 2011 in parts in response to the success of the MacBook Air, fine but not very powerful than a netbook.
The typical specifications of an ultrabook are:
- less than 2 centimeters thick
- Intel high-performance, low-voltage Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge family
- Solid state drives
- Ability to turn on or off from hibernation instantly
- Price around $ 1000.
Obviously such specifications are very susceptible to the evolution of the technology and will not last forever. Ultrabooks are sometimes mistaken for Netbooks. In comparison, ultrabooks use more powerful processors, faster disks and more RAM, and have a larger screen than netbooks.
With the future transition of Intel processors to the Hawell family that is SoC-style (System on a Chip), the trend is for prices to fall by half.
But does it make sense to have an ultrabook? The prices of 1000 dollars are certainly out there and when they arrive here in Brazil the price more than doubles. For now (Feb 2012) it is detrimental to think about buying an ultrabook in Brazil since there are already well priced notebooks. Maybe in the future when ultrabooks get popular around here it will be possible to actually find them for prices equivalent to the initial 1000 dollars or less.
