Taiwanese laptop makers plan ultrabook-like laptops

Posted on Wednesday, March 07 2012 @ 20:42:42 CET by

Due to the delay of Intel's Ivy Bridge processors, Taiwanese notebook makers are planning to offer ultrabook-like laptops in Q2 2012. DigiTimes heard these systems will be similar to ultrabooks in terms of slimness, but less expensive (around $600).
Viewing that Intel will delay the launch of Ivy Bridge processors until June and existing Sandy Bridge-based ultrabooks are too expensive, Taiwan-based vendors plan to offer ultrabook-like, notebooks similar to ultrabooks in terms of slimness but less expensive for sale at about US$600, for launch in the second quarter, according to industry sources.

As ultrabooks are equipped with metal cases, expensive hollow hinges and SSDs, high production costs push retail prices to US$1,000, much higher than the price level of US$600-700 expected in the market, the sources said.
