Just like netbooks before them, it seems that Ultrabooks have caught the public need just right for an ultralight, reasonably powerful laptop that does not cost a fortune. These laptops though are not chasing a loss, they are there to make money for the companies concerned, unlike netbooks before them. I cannot wait for the Ultrabook that has a 1920×1080 pixel resolution in an 11.6″ package (my dream machine!)
We’ve seen so much Ultrabook news recently we’re beginning to think they’re catching on. Market research firm the NPD Group has stepped in to confirm our suspicions, reporting a 39 percent jump in sales of premium Windows laptops (900 bucks and up) during the first five months of this year, compared with the same period in 2011.
