Ultrabooks are certainly among the most sought after products on the market today. Therefore, it is not surprising that these ultrathin and light laptops come in different sizes and with different prices, thus offering customers the opportunity to choose the product that suits them the most.
The Japanese tech company Toshiba is next manufacturer to introduce a new Ultrabook device, called Dynabook R632. Aimed at consumer and business users on-the-go, the R632 will become commercially available at the end of July 2012 carrying a 174,800JPY price-tag (about $2,190).
Built around an Intel QM77 Express Chipset, the Dynabook R632/W1UF model is powered by an ultra-low voltage, third generation Intel Core i7-3667U CPU (with Intel’s vPro platform for enhanced security), which is currently the fastest mobile ULV chip for notebooks. The dual-core processor is clocked at 2.0GHz (up to 3.1GHz) and offers 4MB of cache, the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card and 17W max TDP.
Furthermore, the Ultrabook comes equipped with a 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen display of HD native resolution (1366-by-768 pixels), 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM and a 256GB solid-state drive. Other specs include an Intel Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX (a/b/g/n) radio, one USB 3.0 port, RGB, HDMI output, a fingerprint reader and a built-in 1.3MP web camera.
