Digitimes has stepped forward to the mound, touting that HP, the world’s largest computer manufacturer, is ready to be the first to roll out Ultrabook concept notebooks. In fact, in their potential zeal to do so, they would have overtaken Asus and the Taiwanese manufacturer’s efforts in releasing the UX21 Ultrabook sometime this September.
HP has plans to launch not one, but at least two models of Ultrabooks that will rely on Intel’s new Ultra-thin Core i7-2677M (1.8GHz) and i7-2637M (1.7GHz) dual-core CPUs, where by initial production is said to be outsourced to Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry).
Both HP and Foxconn have declined to say anything about the situation, despite the latter having been tipped to start shipping the Ultrabooks to HP. Well, healthy competition is always good for the masses, as we consumers win in the end as the best gets sent down the production line as manufacturers attempt to outdo one another.
