Intel finds the technology needed for the production of Ultrabooks too costly, making them incapable of undercutting the MacBook Air Prices.

Since then, Intel was aiming to produce a number of energy-efficient products that are capable of grasping a large percentage of the market sales. They started this goal by introducing a new version of laptops addressed as “Ultrabooks”. These so-called Ultrabooks are believed to mimic some features of Apple’s MacBook Air, but with a much thinner and lighter feel. It is also expected to cover up 40% of the laptop market by the last quarter of 2012.

In order to achieve this goal, Intel has to work on producing cheaper laptops. However, sources close to the company said that the manufacturers are facing difficulties on pricing their devices lower than Apple’s MacBook Air, thus, affecting their aimed success in the market.

Samsung ships keyloggers with its new laptops? That can't be!

An article published at Network World claims that Samsung installs Microsoft Windows keylogger on its laptops by default. As written by Mohamed Hassan, the VIPRE Antivirus detected a StarLogger software on two Samsung laptops from different retailers.

In addition to this, Samsung support seems to confirm the allegation by saying that StarLogger is installed by default to monitor the machine’s performance and how it is used.

Samsung Tomorrow posted a statement to deny the claim. According to them, VIPRE mistook a folder, C:\WINDOWS\SL, as a keylogger software. More over, F-Secure said that the company hasn’t seen any kind of peak of StarLogger reports. That said, new laptops from Samsung are actually safe.

Stolen laptop? Though we might not be able to track where it is, we can do a system lockdown through a simple SMS. What are we talking about? We're talking about the Intel Core vPro processor.

Intel is right on the case for those scenarios as they’ve unveiled its second-generation Core vPro processors which allows you to disable a lost or stolen unit through an encrypted SMS over a 3G network.
