Ultrabooks – slim, portable high-powered notebooks – are expected to soak up the limelight at CES 2012.
Now it is "ultrabooks" – a term introduced and trademarked by Intel to describe a slim, portable, high-powered PC. (In a nice analysis of the ultrabook, Ina Fried of All Things Digital jokes that she has another name for the devices. "I call them laptops," she writes.) And according to an array of reports from tech analysts, ultrabooks are set to dominate the show at this year's CES, an annual technology gala staged in Las Vegas.
Think the MacBook Air, running Windows. Think small, light, and powerful.
So how will the ultrabooks end up performing on the electronics market? Over at Computerworld, Barbara Krasnoff advises a wait-and-see attitude.
