Default The Intel Ultrabook Gets Backed by Money

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.anandtech.com/show/4608/intel-announces-ultrabook-fund-300m-to-kick-off-innovation' target='_blank'>http://www.anandtech.com/show/4608/...-off-innovation</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"At this year's Computex Intel announced a "new" category of notebook computer designed to further blur the lines between traditional notebooks and tablets: the Ultrabook. Requirements for an Ultrabook are straightforward: it needs to be thin and light, it needs to have an SSD and it needs to be available at less than $1000. Think MacBook Air, but for all manufacturers."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1313431255.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The $300 million fund may help drive more interest in the Ultrabook spec, but I am not really sure how it will help.&nbsp; Companies are already seeking to achieve the same coolness factor that the MacBook Air, or Samsung Series 9 have.&nbsp; Those that currently do not have something comparable offer basic laptops at half the cost, or are investing their energies into the hot tablet market.&nbsp; If it catches on though, I suspect that there will be an increase in manilla folder sales.</p>

They need to add, 'and it needs to last better than 6 hours on a charge' (without adding a two pound batterry on the back or bottom).
