We have all heard of laptops, notebooks and netbooks, but a new breed of portable computers has now entered the market, called “Ultrabooks.” The allure of the Ultrabook is it’s sleek, thin, lightweight and ultra-portable design. Let’s face it, would you rather go into a meeting with your 3″ thick black laptop that takes a year to boot and will only run for 30 minutes before plugging it in, or a sleek, thin, sexy, laptop?
The Ultrabooks aren’t going to provide you with all of the comforts of a full fledged laptop. Most Ultrabooks have a 13″ screen or smaller, has a smaller hard drive, don’t have a DVD drive, and only have a few ports, but in giving up these creature comforts you end up with a laptop that has a larger battery life, is under 3lbs, and can fit easily in your purse or briefcase. These laptops aren’t designed for everyone, but for those constantly on the road and those that need more power than a tablet or iPad can provide, the Ultrabook line is right up their alley.
