Intel: Windows 8 ultrabooks with touchscreens to be big focus in 2012

Posted on Wednesday, November 16 2011 @ 21:25:46 CET by

Intel CEO Paul Otellini spoke at the Intel Capital Global Summit and sounded upbeat about Windows 8 ultrabooks with touch-based interfaces. Personally I can't see the appeal of ultrabooks with touchscreens though, unless you can convert them into tablets.
Otellini said that to lure mainstream laptop buyers, Intel and its partners need to get the cost of touch technology under control. "To hit the volume price points, we need to span $699 and up, and that's the goal for next year," he said, speaking at the Intel Capital Global Summit in Huntington Beach, Calif.

"To do that, we have to get touch to a lower cost. This is particularly important, as we move to the launch of Windows 8. The iPad and the iPhone have made touch a paradigm," he said.
