What to keep in mind when purchasing an Ultrabook
The Ultrabook™, the newest player in the laptop computer market, has picked up a significant following since first being introduced by Intel® in 2011. Still, some confusion may remain as to what exactly differentiates Ultrabooks from traditional notebook computers.
When looking to buy an Ultrabook, there are a number of factors to keep in mind before making a decision.
The first is design. Unlike their bulkier predecessors, Ultrabooks are slim and lightweight, which enhances their portability. They are built to appear streamlined and sleek and include many high-quality components.
Next, a prospective buyer should take into account the performance of the device. It's not uncommon for an Ultrabook's battery life to exceed eight hours. And the use of SSD technology speeds boot times, meaning a user can avoid watching the loading bar.
Price should be the final area that factors into a decision. While some devices carry price tags that exceed those of traditional laptop PCs, it's important to keep in mind the robust features that come with the cost. Some experts have also predicted the price of Ultrabooks to soon begin to decline.
