Protected fromIntel, the Ultrabook is struggling to take. Its high prices are probably not for nothing. This is in any case what its designer thinks who wants, with his next generation of processors, to attack the market hard by presenting more aggressive prices.

At the Intel Solutions Summit, Kirk Skaugen, director of the PC division ofIntel, made it clear that the real launch of the Ultrabook is coming soon. The first models released so far were “just a catch-up to what was already on the market. The new generation, equipped with Haswell processors, will embark on real innovations such as the touch screen, better definitions or even higher capacity SSDs for more efficient autonomy thanks to the support of Haswell.

Finally, these new Ultrabooks should debutr from 599 dollars thanks to lower component prices. It would be a small revolution in the world of laptops. Thus placed, the Ultrabook would rub in the middle of the range. However, we will have to wait until the end of 2013 to see the first copies.
