Increase in an effort, brand strength and focus strategy, computer maker Acer and ASUS are allegedly plan to optimize their respective families of notebooks and Netbooks in 2012. The DIGITIMESReport said the company on the consolidation of the number of plan showed contracts with OEMs computer models offer it (ASUS has around 50 notebook models), such as the Asus Eee PC line, the will cut up to five models from 10 models.
The strategy is a similar to the from Apple, which offers a few versions of their notebooks and a brand that is developed over. ASUS plans high-performance notebooks for the offer Player defined in 2012, along with ultrabooks – thin and light ultraportable laptops, a Specification by Intel.
Acer debuted the first ultrabook in September, the ASUS A3, second image showing the latest generation of Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors for full computing power and digital creation ability, and one choice of the 240GB SSD or 320/500 GB HDD with embedded SSD measures 1.3 cm thin and weighs less than 3 Pounds.
ASUS launched a ultrabook own in October, the so-called Zenbook-, sport-SATA revision 3.0 fixed SSD (state memory), Bluetooth v4.0 with USB 3.0, along with own refrigeration technology a v-shaped channel with a copper-fin design for improved airflow and cooling. The notebook uses even Asus ‘ patented Super hybrid engine II technology conserves laptop battery life and allows the Zenbook to have up to 25 more battery life than other ultrabook designs.
System makers take a conservative approach to ultrabooks for several reasons, including its experience a few years ago with Intel’s consumer ultra low voltage (CULV) thin notebooks, the never took hold in the market and ongoing difficulties bring ultrabooks under the price $1,000, was a key point of Intel executives, when they presented the idea. In addition, some OEMs can will wait until the 2012 version of Intel’s “Ivy Bridge” chips, which essentially becomes smaller Versions of the current “Sandy Bridge” processors, to really embrace the form factor.
Intel executives think of ultrabooks as the combination of performance and reliability of traditional Notebooks with capabilities in tablets found, including instant-on and finally touch features.
You said, the ultra thin, ultra light laptops should have not more than 0.8 inches thick, running on x 86-based chips and costs less than Intel said $1.000. officials, they expect ultrabooks accounts for 40 percent all notebooks sold by the end of 2012.
