Ultrabooks offer the pinnacle of computing experience with incredible responsiveness, performance, super mobile and stylish designs, and peace of mind with great security. With the holidays just around the corner, there are already more than 70 Ultrabook models on the market based on 3rd gen Intel Core processors to choose from. And as promised by Intel's GM of the PC Client Group Kirk Skaugen at IDF Beijing and reiterated at Computex, Ultrabook systems are now selling at or below $750 in the U.S. from Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Sony and Toshiba.

Industry momentum continues to scale in the Ultrabook category with 26 different models now available for purchase in various markets around the world. While the category is a mere 9 months old, manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide are adding more and more devices to their line-ups, such as the Dell XPS, HP Spectre and Toshiba Portege.  In addition to the twenty-six on sale already, 10 more systems have been announced by the likes of Fujitsu, Gigabyte, Lenovo and Acer among many others, with more than 75 designs in the pipeline for 2012.
