Intel raised $300 million fund for the development of an ultrabook that is similar to MacBook Air.

Intel’s capital division pledged itself to their ultrabook concept in earnest late Wednesday by beginning the Ultrabook fund. This fund is worth $300 million and will be allocated for the companies’ ultraportable developments, as well as software to take advantage of them. The said budget will be divided over the course of the next three to four years.

The company has been predicting that their ultrabooks will be an important area for innovation in computers as a whole, which were estimated to be worth $261 billion. PC builders have already been working closely with Intel from the start, and have were getting unusually direct guidelines for what they should use to create the thin and light PCs. Intel also gives them guidelines for the price ranges and choice of materials. Depending on the screen size, ultrabooks should be no thicker than 0.7 or 0.8 inches and will often have real metal shells and solid-state drives.

ACER declared their return on profit on the third quarter of the year, as they face Macbook Air rival.

JT Wang, ACER chairman, argued his belief at last Thursday’s presentation that the company would return to profit in 2011. This comes after posting their two consecutive losses in the first half of the year, because of the Apple’s iPad domination over netbooks and low-end notebooks.

JT Wang also said that he expects a profit in the summer and an improvement in the fall — the combination of which would put ACER back in the top of the market. The said Taiwan PC builder cut its ‘abnormalities’ in Europe from unsold notebooks, and would have a much efficient 10 to 20 days of channel inventory in the summer.
