DigiTimes reports Intel has revealed a reference bill of materials (BOM) without assembly costs for 21mm ultrabooks at $475-650 and 18mm units at $493-710.
Intel is scheduled to meet notebook ODM partners in Taipei next week to discuss the BOM and other details pertaining to ultrabooks with an aim to control the initial selling prices of ultrabooks to below US$1,000, the sources noted.

Intel will also push next-generation ultrabooks based on its 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs in 2012 and also tout Haswell-based models in 2013, the sources indicated.

Huron River-based ultrabooks launched in 2011 and Chief River-based models launched in 2012 will be available in 11-17 inches, with models in 11-13 inches having a thickness of 18mm and 14-17-inch models at 21mm.
