Ultrabooks to Stimulate Key Component Market, Notebook LED Demand to Be Determined, Competition Heightened
Ultrabooks are set to take the market by storm, gradually taking a piece of the traditional notebook market and providing new momentum for the entire IT industry. According to market research firm TrendForce, chip giant Intel is leading the ultrabook revolution in 2011, with the MacBook Air dominated, ultra thin and light notebook market as their goal. The birth of ultrabook is expected to benefit many different industries, and will hopefully sweep away the clouds of tablet PC popularity and global economic factors currently looming over the PC industry.

According to statistics compiled by TrendForce, compared to the MacBook Air's US$999 price tag, average ultrabook retail price will initially be set at around US$800-1,100. As traditional notebooks are currently available for US$300-500, the higher-priced ultrabooks should help increase total revenue for the notebook industry.
