First Acer ultrabook coming this Fall

Acer president has announced an upcoming ultrabook and is hoping that the new laptop category can rejuvenate the notebook market

Although the term “ultrabook” was just defined by Intel earlier this week, Acer is already gearing up to release an ultrabook of its own later this year.

According to Reuters, the Taiwan-based computer manufacturer has announced an ultrabook launch for Q4 2011. “The ultrabook can help to revive the notebook market,” said Acer President Jim Wong. Intel is hoping that its new class of ultrabook laptops will account for 40 percent of laptop sales by the end of 2012. Further details on the upcoming Acer ultrabook is currently unknown.

Additionally, Wong is forecasting growing revenue from the tablet and smartphone market. By 2015, he expects one third of Acer revenue to be made up of non-notebook devices.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
