MacBook Air: Stealing the Thunder from Intel, ASUS and ACER

Written on August 24, 2011 by Adam Eve

While Ultrabooks are soon to take the laptop and netbook market, MacBook Air has already took the spotlight.

Sooner or later, laptops and netbooks will have to make way for a device that is thinner, lighter and houses more features than its chubbier rivals — the Ultrabook or ultra-portable laptop.

Ever since Apple released its iPad last April, many consumers were swayed by its sleek looks and audio-visual charms. Hence, the world’s largest chip maker – Intel – has set up a $300 million Capital Ultrabook Fund to support technology that will boost the introduction of ultra-portable laptops.

Taiwan’s ASUS is likely to be the first to launch Ultrabooks in India with its UX21. The said device will arrive in the country during the first quarter of 2012 with an estimated price of Rs 50,000. ACER also plans to roll out a Ultrabook soon after.

However, it could be possible that by the time Ultrabook hits the market, much of its thunder would have already been stolen. Although it is not categorized as one, Apple’s MacBook Air is the first Ultrabook that is already in the market.
