Ultrabooks - A new baby in the cluttered world of laptops

Ever wondered someone somewhere raving about Ultrabooks!  Most of you know what a laptop is but if you want to know what this new paradigm in personal computing is, here I am to help you understand what they are.

Ultrabooks in lay man’s terms – is a product born out of combining the best of tablet features and a laptop.  So you are right if you are guessing

1. An ultrabook would switch on instantly like a tablet
2. An ultrabook can keep your applications updated like a tablet does, for example downloading emails when the device is not in use or internet messaging sending push messages to your device while not in use
3. It is ultra-thin and ultra-light form factor like your tablet
4. Long battery life of a minimum of 5 hours to up to 10 hours
5. They are very much available with few brands having launched it already- look for Acer, Asus and LG in India
