    MarketResearch.com has announced the addition of "Ultrabooks Market to 2016 -- Financial and Technological Support from Intel Corporation Coupled with Demand from Business Users Segment Will Drive Growth," to their collection of market reports.

    GBI Research's new report, "Ultrabooks Market to 2016 -- Financial and Technological Support from Intel Corporation Coupled with Demand from Business Users Segment Will Drive Growth," provides key information and analysis on the Ultrabooks market. The Ultrabook is defined by Intel as being any notebook using Intel processors and meeting certain chip manufacturer specifications. However, in general the term is being used for notebooks that are lightweight (less than four pounds), ultra-thin (less than 2.1cm thick) and have screen sizes varying from 13 to 15 inches. GBI Research expects the global Ultrabooks market to reach $75.8 billion in revenue in 2016, from just $1.3 billion in 2011, growing at a CAGR of 69.2% during 2012-2016.

    The high prices of Ultrabooks compared to notebooks and tablet PCs is a major market challenge for manufacturers like HP, Dell, ASUS and Acer. However, factors like the reduction in the processor prices, hardware and software support, funding from Intel and reduction in flash memory prices will have a significant impact on the overall Ultrabooks market sales in the long term. The report provides market size figures from 2011-2016 for the Ultrabooks market, product component revenue forecasts, and analysis of the market based on different key factors such as cost and market share. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research, and in-house analysis by GBI Research's team of industry experts.

    For this to happen, either the marketing team needs to work extra time, or all notebooks smaller than 15" would have shrunk to less than 4lbs and thinner than 2.1cm.

    This sector of the notebook segment has a ridiculous pricing model. I think there's a better chance of the word UltraBook no longer being used by 2016.

    :laugh: Are these the same people that said, a year ago, that the Ultrabook would account for 30% of the laptop market?

    I think Liquid Cool has a better chance at being right then anyone who hypes up the Ultrabook market.

    If they are willing to do some research and offer Ultrabooks starting at $500 instead of $1000 sure they will sell nicely (even if its build is plasticky).
