Running on Ivy Bridge, loaded with Thunderbolt ports and costing under $1,000, Intel's Ultrabook laptop segment is expected to be big news in late 2012—if you believe what Intel's saying, anyway. Digitimes claims Intel's attempting to lure 40 per cent of laptop manufacturers into creating Ultrabooks, but until Intel lowers the chip prices, it may not be possible. Asus is planning to launch its Ultrabook UX21 laptop this September however, so I'm sure all eyes will be on the lookout for the first Ultrabook's success. [Digitimes]
