The Ultrabook specifications were developed by Intel largely in response to the markets demand for a product that combined all the performance capabilities of a standard notebook running Windows and Windows applications in a thin light weight form factor similar to a tablet. The criteria for a product to be identified as an Ultrabook consists of many factors that ensure the end client of a specific user experience no matter what brand they purchased.
ASI offers a variety of Ultrabook solutions from Lenovo and ASUS as well as offers Ultrathin BTO options that meet the dimensional Ultrabook specifications but do not include mandatory requirements such as touch so they are not branded as an Ultrabook.
What Makes an Ultrabook
For most people when they think of Ultrabook, they think of a sleek, light weight product that delivers long battery life but in reality Ultrabook is much more. In addition to these specifications, Ultrabooks also need to meet specific performance guidelines, and have additional security capability to protect the notebook in the event of theft.
ASUS offers a range of business class ultrabooks beginning with the Zenbook which is extremely sleek yet powerful as it includes models with an NVIDIA graphics engine, 4k UHD resolution screens and Intel 6th Generation Core i7 processors.
