Plastic chassis to make ultrabooks cheaper

Posted on Friday, May 04 2012 @ 20:57:29 CEST by

VR Zone reports the use of fiberglass-reinforced plastic enclosures rather than all-aluminium should make ultrabooks cheaper. According to Intel's testing, this cheaper material responds similarly to metal chassis' in torque tests.
Intel's Taiwan chief Jason Chen has stated that in the second half of this year "it is likely there will be US$599 models in selected regions, but the mainstream price should fall around US$699." Chen believes that as a result of a significant price drop, Ultrabooks will end up accounting for between 30 and 40% of all notebook shipments for the year.
