The idea of the Ultrabook is to make laptops a bit more convenient, but powerful enough for most tasks.
The term Ultra Thin Laptops is actually pure marketing, dreamt up by Intel for a new generation of portable PCs featuring its technology.
The best way to think of an Ultrabook is a Macbook Air that isn’t made by Apple, a netbook that isn’t underpowered or a laptop that’s been on a crash diet.
The term Ultra Thin Laptops was coined by Intel, and it specifies laptops with particular specifications, separating them from other ultraportable laptops. They’ll all have Intel Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processors, fast SSD storage to some degree, and now USB 3.0 connectivity, for speedy file transfers.
