A couple of days ago, we reported that there were rumors that Dell was planning on unveiling a new series of ultrabooks at CES next year. With the MacBook Air many are considering to be the ultrabook to beat, according to Digitime’s sources, Dell may have a 14” Uultrabook planned, with Wistron apparently responsible for the design and will supposedly have the prototype ready for Dell’s CES introduction next year.
Digitimes is also saying that HP apparently has their ultrabooks prepared and they have been manufactured by Quanta. If Digitimes’s sources are to be believed, HP should be rolling out these ultrabooks by the end of 2011 with Dell expected to launch theirs early 2012.
Depending on how Digitimes’s sources define “early 2012”, this would seem to corroborate our previous report on how Intel only plans to start shipping their Ivy Bridge processors in March, which means that if Dell were to start selling their ultrabooks with Ivy Bridge, potential customers should be able to expect the new ultrabooks to go on sale after March.Related articles:
