“Ultrabooks” are set to take the market by storm, gradually taking a piece of the traditional notebook market and providing new momentum for the entire IT industry. According to market research firm TrendForce (http://www.trendforce.com), chip giant Intel is leading the ultrabook revolution in 2011, with the MacBook Air dominating the ultra thin and light notebook market.

Intel, along with the rest of the computer industry chain, aims to produce an ultrabook as thin and light as the MacBook Air, with longer battery life and better computing efficiency than standard notebooks. Computer makers will be introducing different models of ultrabooks between the fourth quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012, according to TrendForce CEO Kevin Lin.
