The MacBook Air is currently one of Apple’s best selling computers. Granted it’s not the cheapest Ultrabook around, but given its specs and its looks, it’s a price that some are willing to pay for. Dell, who is currently the number 3 PC manufacturer, reportedly has no plans to stop pumping out laptops until they have managed to create a challenger for Apple’s MacBook Air, and word has it that the company has plans to either unveil or release a line of Ultrabook computers in time for CES 2012.
According to the reports, these line of Ultrabook computers Dell will be manufacturing will feature Intel’s Ivy Bridge processor, but given that CES will be January and how Intel may only be shipping Ivy Bridge in March or later, either Dell will be getting some exclusive first deal with Intel or they may just end up showing prototypes at CES instead of actual product launches.
With Dell’s Adamo series intended to be contenders against Apple’s MacBook Air, which was then phased out and dropped due to weak demand, could Dell see success the third time round (second time with the XPS 14z which unfortunately turned out thicker and heavier than the MacBook Air)? After all, third time’s the charm, right?
