Exciting new products are popping up all over the place, and at Intel and Microsoft they have their innovation-caps on and set to max.
Intel and Microsoft have teamed up to roll out the latest generation of PCs: the Ultrabook.
The Ultrabook is a lightweight laptop that can be converted into a tablet at the user’s discretion. Very similar to the Macbook, the Ultrabook caters to the hundreds of thousands of Windows-users who lust after the portability and convenience of a laptop with a touchscreen that weighs less than your lunchbox and can be booted up at a moment’s notice.
Those who didn’t fall for the Macbook Air will be very pleased with the Ultrabook. Not only does it run on Windows 8 (including all the Windows applications that are useful for work and school), but it also features the latest Intel Ivy-Bridge Processors (the same company that built the processors for the Macbook).
The Ultrabook has several advantages over the Macbook. Firstly, there will be a greater choice in design and vendor. You won’t be forced to buy the same product from the same company as everyone else. Second, for the same price as a Macbook you get a 13” screen with more memory, and more ports for your cables and USBs, and finally, you get access to those Windows applications (like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint) that so many people depend on.
