Intel To Start Making Super Thin Sub $1,000 Fiberglass Ultrabooks

X

Intel is set to start making super thin laptops that could be made of fibreglass as opposed to having a unibody magnesium-aluminum chassis. The processor company claims that it allows them to aggresively “cut prices” according to various reports.Intel aims to take on the MacBook Air in the superthin laptop category with their new range of Ultrabooks, which will consist of 18mm super-slim notebooks (with 11-inch and13-inch screens) and 21mm-thick notebooks (with 14-inch and17-inch screen). The new offerings will have no  optical drive.

 Intel claimed at Computex back in May that it thinks Ultrabooks “will make up 40 per cent of the market by the end of 2012.”

The new devices are set to go on sale for sub US$1,000.

Digitimes claims that Intel’s Ultrabooks standard bills of materials will be in the range of $500-$700, which is noticeably less than what it costs Apple to manufacture a MacBook Air.

Intel’s new Ivy Bridge-based notebooks should arrive in stores at some point early next year. We’ll bring you more official news as and when it comes in.
