Who benefits from the Ultrabook's long battery life?
One of the most appealing aspects of the Ultrabook™ computer is its emphasis on portability. While traditional laptops were never a hassle to carry around, the Ultrabook takes this convenience to the next level.
An essential part of the Ultrabook's portability is its long battery life. This is a characteristic borrowed from tablet computers. Unlike traditional laptops, which typically last up to four hours or so on a single charge, tablets -- and now Ultrabooks -- proved that it is possible to go an entire eight to nine hours without having to plug the device in.
Battery life is an obvious necessity for traveling employees, who are often cited as beneficiaries of today's mobile technology. But while road warriors certainly have a use for an eight-hour battery charge, in-office employees can also benefit. Those who spend their days running around the office instead of tethered to a desk will find that not having to stop to plug in every once in awhile can be a liberating experience and ensures continued productivity.
The fact that Ultrabooks run eight to nine hours may be a coincidence, but it happens to also be the length of the average work day. This means that employees of all kinds could potentially benefit greatly from the Ultrabook's extended battery life.
