The battle for the best ultra-portable laptop is heating up, as HP is set to unveil at least two Ultrabooks to take on Apple's MacBook Air.

The war between ultra-portable laptops is firing up, as HP is anticipated to be the first to release laptops based on Intel’s new Ultrabook category: Slim, affordable laptops, which can be a worthy alternative for Apple’s MacBook Air. DigiTimes also reported that HP is slated to launch at least two Ultrabook models prior to ASUS UX21.

Sources also informed DigiTimes that HP Ultrabooks will use Intel’s Core i7-2677M and i7-2637M dual-core CPUs. However, the chip maker’s guidelines for Ultrabooks indicate that the HP models will be 0.8-inches thick, with long battery-life, and should be tagged under $1,000.

With Apple expected to unveil a MacBook air refresh in the coming days, the timing of this news makes it very interesting. The race for the best ultra-portable laptop is about to start.
