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.
