CES 2012 Guide to the Ultrabook™, Inspired by Intel

INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, Las Vegas, Jan. 9, 2012 – Intel Corporation is leading the industry to re-invent the personal computing experience with the new category of Ultrabook™ devices. Shaped by extensive user research, Ultrabook devices will increasingly give people the most complete and satisfying, no-compromise and secure computing experience in one sleek and portable device.

Hitting store shelves less than 4 months ago, Ultrabook devices have already seen strong momentum with more than 15 models available from such companies as Acer, ASUS, HP, Lenovo, LG, Samsung and Toshiba. More than 60 Ultrabook designs — and growing — are in the pipeline for 2012. The second wave of Ultrabook systems based on the forthcoming 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors (codenamed “Ivy Bridge”) will begin to arrive in the spring. They are followed by the 2013 introduction of Intel’s “Haswell” processor, expected to achieve up to a 20 times improvement in idle platform power and usher in the third wave of Ultrabook devices.
