In recent days, the great wave of Ultrabook. Acer, Lenovo or Toshiba have recently introduced models that inspired quite frankly the MacBook Air. If the ultraportable Apple will have competition in the coming weeks, manufacturers embark on this segment timidly. According to DigiTimes, no more than 50 000 models were produced to deal with the initial application. It must be said that the market for personal computing is at half mast. In addition, some manufacturers may have learned the lesson of the iPad. Many had produced large quantities of tablets and currently have the greatest difficulty in selling them.
Most of these models will arrive on the market next month. Intel, which firmly believes in the concept, planning a conference on the subject on Sept. 14. The semiconductor giant has well resolve the various problems relating to technological Ultrabook and hopes to quickly find new partners. Intel's goal is ambitious, but for now seems out of reach: ensure that by the end of 2012, the share of Ultrabook represents 40% of mobile phone sales to the general public. Intel is also disavowed by one of its partners, Asustek, which estimates that this target will be missed. On the other hand, Asian society already promised that the next generation of Ultrabook expected in April 2012 will be sold cheaper. These models will feature architecture Ivy Bridge. Anyway, it's a funny way to advertise the current generation.
