Ultrabook - 2nd Gen Intel Core

Many people may ask, “What’s an Ultrabook?” It’s quite simple really. Think of an Apple MacBook Air. Thin, light, and has a sleek design. It’s a cross between a small netbook and a full size laptop, but the new line of Ultrabooks come with complete hardware specs of the 2nd gen Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors. This makes an Ultrabook a very fast netbook with all of the upgrades. A true Ultrabook must weigh less than 4 pounds, is no more that 0.8 inches thick, and has a battery life of 5 hour or more.
