HP could be first to release an Ultrabook
Intel’s Ultrabook concept of notebooks was first introduced back at Computex earlier this year, but no actual products have yet been released. Although ASUS’s UX21 (also introduced at Computex) was expected by many to be the first ultrabook notebook, it now seems as if someone else might steal the spotlight.
As reported by Digitimes, HP could be the first to pioneer an Ultrabook notebook, and could even release more than one laptop at once. According to Taiwan-based parts suppliers, HP and Foxconn are teaming up to produce multiple ultrabooks featuring Core i7-2677M and Core i7-2637M CPUs. Foxconn may even have already begun shipping the notebooks to HP; however, both companies have declined to comment on the subject.
While the above info is all that’s currently known about HP’s new ultrabooks, a bit more info may be gleaned from the original description set by Intel. By definition, ultrabooks are thin and light, but still feature long battery life and a sub-$1,000 price tag. As such, we can expect HP’s ultrabooks to fit those specifications and hopefully we can learn more in the upcoming months.
