Many users already left already very positive ultrabook reviews. Three such fantastic products are the Apple MacBook Air, Acer S3-951 and the Asus Zenbook UX31. Find out why Intel says that 40% of the laptops customers buy in 2012 will be ultrabooks. And why a customer will change their laptop to get his hands on an ultrabook.
Apple MacBook Air is the first ultrabook
Earlier in 2011, the Apple MacBook Air was on the market before Intel’s comparable Ultrabook made the scene. Steve Jobs gave stiff competition to the ARM processor-equipped tablet computers. If you are planning to buy ultrabooks rather than a tablet or laptop, it is worth considering. Ultrabook reviews give high marks to the MacBook Air for many reasons besides that it is very lightweight and slim.

Comparison of the MacBook Air, Asus Zenbook UX31 and Acer S3-951
Many reviews claim that neither of these have the back lighted keyboard that is so appealing with the MacBook ultrabook. Nor do they have the software capability that the Apple MacBook Air has, as they can’t handle the intensive gaming or top-end video gaming like the Air. All three weigh less than three pounds, with each offering an 11- inch and a 13-inch high-resolution display screen. All three are attractive, but ultrabook reviews typically proclaim the Zenbook UX31 is uniquely beautiful with a brushed circular silver exterior that projects a halo from light refraction. How’s that for Zen? Prices vary, with the Acer’s 11-inch model at $900 USD, and the other two for about $1,000 USD, according to ultrabook reviews. Where to buy an ultrabook is at any physical or online electronics store offering laptops.
Ultrabook prices will go down in 2012
Since the ultrabooks were only introduced in 2011, they are higher priced than the laptop notebook, and much higher than most tablets. Prices are expected to plummet to around $700 USD in 2012. It is believable, then, that Intel is realistically predicting ultrabooks being 40% of the laptop market in 2012. With their sleek appearance and light weight, ultrabook reviews are expressing the same popularity as with the present tablets. It will be exciting to see if it will be true or not. Movement in the technology sector is means also new and best deals will appear for the previous generation.
