Ultrabook numbers will fall far short of Intel’s targets, an IDC analyst told “CNET.” Meanwhile, Apple’s MacBook Air continues to be a hot seller.
“The volume isn’t there and it’s going to be way below what Intel had hoped for,” IDC analyst Jay Chou told “CNET, “referring to ultrabooks.
“The first half [of 2012] is about 500,000 ultrabooks shipped worldwide. It’s nowhere near Intel’s initial hope,”
Unit shipments of MacBooks were up in the second fiscal quarter to about 2.8 million, compared with 2.75 million in the same quarter last year. The MacBook Air is a good part of Apple’s business and has had good growth,” Chou said.
