Intel to Debut Third-Gen Ultrabooks at Computex; USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt Required Now

May 31, 2012 - 10:44 AM - by dgstorm

As you can see from the pic above, Intel plans to share a new Ultrabook specification roadmap at the newest Computex in Taipei this year. In order for a device to be considered an "Ultrabook" it will have to meet the new specifications standard. The two biggest changes to the new spec list will require the device to use USB 3.0 and/or Thunderbolt data transfer connectors. Here's a quote with a few more details,

Intel also wants security built-in, rather than optional, as well as guarantees that a system is quick and responsive when it's fully awake. Not that this would be terribly hard with the low-voltage Ivy Bridge processors launching at the same time, mind you.

Just to reinforce the importance of it all, Intel is noting that the flood of Ultrabooks is about to pick up in a big way as the category hits the mainstream. We were promised 75 Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks this year in a presentation back at CES; that number's now up to 110, 30 of which will be Windows 8-friendly touchscreen models and another 10 opting for the convertible tablet route.

Intel Plans to Spend Hundreds of Millions on Spaghetti Western Ultrabook Ad Campaign

Apr 05, 2012 - 3:33 PM - by dgstorm

Very soon, we will see a massive advertising campaign from Intel designed to do one thing... revive the PC industry using the new Ultrabooks as the avatar of that ascension. Supposedly, Intel plans to spend, literally "hundreds of millions" of dollars on a new spaghetti western-style ad format. The theme of this new campaign is designed to make consumers believe that anything but an Ultrabook is too "old fashioned." This will reportedly be the biggest campaign from Intel in 10 years, and they have dubbed it, "A New Era of Computing".

Above is one of the first videos of that new ad campaign. What do you guys think? Will this campaign help convince consumers to part with their hard earned dollars for a PC again?

Novatech to offer inexpensive nFinity Ultrabooks in the UK

Mar 28, 2012 - 10:42 AM - by dgstorm

Folks in the UK are going to see affordable Ultrabooks a bit before everyone else apparently. The company Novatech just shared the pricing and availability dates for their new inexpensive line of Ultrabooks, the "nFinity Series." The first of these tablets will ship directly from Novatech on April 10th. They have several units available, with various features and prices. All the models come with a 14-inch screen with a 1366x768 resolution. Their chassis will be 18mm thin, and will come with HDMI, VGA and 3 USB 2.0 Ports. Here's a summary of their base model and top model:
  • The base model includes a dual-core Core i3 2367 processor clocked at 1.4Ghz, 64GB of SSD storage, and 2GB of RAM, but no OS. It costs a mere £429.98 (~$683), or you can get it with Windows 7 for £90 (~$143) more.
  • The top model, meanwhile, includes a Core i7 2637 processor clocked at 1.7Ghz, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of SSD storage. This also contains no operating system. It sells for but the £699.98 (~$1,112), and again you can get it with Windows 7 for £90 (~$143) more.

These Ultrabooks are an incredible value when you compare them to some of the more well-known brands like Samsung and ASUS. These prices are dramatically cheaper for even higher-end specs than some of the other options. Sound off what you think in the forums.
