Intel to Focus on Ultrabooks

With launch of Mac Book Air a new debate has started over thin and fast computer. Few count it as one of the reason for the birth of Ultrabooks. Ultrabooks are considered as thin PCs with extra long life of battery. With huge demand of fast and lighter computers Intel has started considering it as the new segment in the computer industry as it considered netbooks few years ago. The key defining factors for Ultrabooks like thickness not more than 21 millimeters wake-from-sleep time equal or less than 7 seconds it is expected to change the way computer are used. It is believed that on 14 September Molly Eden, General Manager of the PC client group at Intel will describe the “transformation of the PC” being driven by the Ultrabooks at the Intel Development Forum.

Even MacBook Air which has a maximum thickness of 17 millimeter but takes more than 7 sec to wake up is in tight talks with Intel to make it faster and turn the microprocessors to consume only 15watts which is currently 35-40 watts. Even Intel has already made it clear that it is working hard to make its processors less energy consuming so that the device can stay longer on without the power supply. It is also believed that on 14 September another meeting will be hosted by both the Intel and Microsoft engineer to discuss titled “ Microsoft  Windows 8 on Intel Architecture “ which will also show some light on the new windows 8 which is the latest operating system in Microsoft operating system series. It is also said Windows 8 which is being developed keeping in mind the Ultrabooks will not only be faster but more realistic for Ultrabooks as it will be faster and will help the Ultrabooks to reduce the wakeup time which is 20-30 sec in windows 7. If we go by Intel Ultrabooks will be available in market by end of 2011 and not only Microsoft but Apple will also have access to the new processors by the same time and will help them to improve the battery life of the Mac Book Air and will also boot the wakeup time.

However the development of Ultrabooks will be carried out in three different phases the first one will be available by end of this year but the development work will carry on. Thus we can expect to see the Windows 8 the new Operating system from Microsoft which will be available by next year with better speed and light weight and new features that has not been seen before with help of the new processors from Intel.
