Although ultrabooks are relying mostly on Wi-Fi for connectivity, Hewlett Packard on the other hand is  planning to sell its ultrabook notebook to business users and consumers  with separate Ethernet port for locations which doesn’t Wi-fi connections. It’s actually the first ultrabook for the enterprises or businesses.

The HP Folio will come with a metal casing but let’s see if this will change by next year since most ultrabook’s  manufacturers are looking for the best  combination of aluminum and plastic or high-density fiberglass.

The PC will be available in the US market starting December 7 at a starting retail price of $900 which undercuts the MacBook Air ($1,299 and up).

2012 – Year of the Ultrabook PC Tablet

Analysts say that if  done right, ultrabooks could be the next big thing.  Forrester analyst David Johnson says interest in ultrabooks has been high while Intel CEO Paul Otellini even wants manufacturers to incorporate a touchscreen into next year’s models in support of Windows 8.

As most of you already know, Ultrabook is  a term that Intel made up to differentiate high-performance, notebook offerings from mainstream notebooks and the tablet market. The equation is something like:

 

Ultrahigh Performance Notebook + Tablet = Ultrabook.

Ultrabooks are partly inspired by MacBook Air which is made of light, aluminum case. Ultrabook manufacturers are currently looking for the right materials such as a combination of aluminum and plastic or high-density fiberglass.

Ultrabook shipments are expected to soar over the next several years, going from less than 1 million units in 2011 to 136.5 million units in 2015, market research firm IHS iSuppli says.

According to PC Pro magazine, Shawn DuBravac, director of research for the Consumer Electronics Association, predicted, “We expect to see 30 to 50 new ultrabooks launched at CES 2012.”

HP To Release First Intel Ultrabook Notebook

With the rumor that Apple is expected to release a new version of MacBook Air soon (maybe this summer), the timing of releasing first ever HP Ultrabook is very interesting. The launch if it will push through, will spearhead the first ever Intel’s Ultrabook-concepts notebooks even ahead of the planned release of Asustek’s UX21 model which is scheduled for September.

According to a report from Taipei-based Digitimes,  Foxconn has already begun shipping Ultrabooks to HP but both parties are still declining to comment about this issue. Sources told DigiTimes that the HP Ultrabooks will use Intel’s Core i7-2677M (1.8GHz) and i7-2637M (1.7GHz) dual-core CPUs. Incidentally, Foxconn is the same company making many of Apple’s product.

This goes to show that HP Ultrabooks may be just around the corner.  So far, based on this development news, HP and Asustek are on the race to launch the first Intel’s Ultrabook concepts notebooks.
