Acer and ASUS to use fiber glass for ultrabooks

Posted on Friday, October 07 2011 @ 21:16:21 CEST by

DigiTimes received word that Acer will introduce a 15" ultrabook with fiber glass enclosure in early 2012. Additionally, the site also heard that ASUS will also adopt fiber glass cases. This material will enable ultrabook makers to save $5-10 compared to models with aluminium alloy enclosures.
Acer plans to launch a 15-inch ultrabook model in early 2012 built using fiber glass cases supplied by Mitac Precision Technology. Asustek Computer is expected to follow suit, also adopting fiber glass cases from MPT, according to industry sources.

Acer originally planned to release the 15-inch model in the fourth quarter but decided to delay the launch to 2012 due to unfavorable market conditions, noted the sources, noting that the fiber glass cases will help bring down unit costs.
