STAFF REPORT IBD: Speaking at a media brief, Naveed Siraj, Intel Country Head, Pakistan, said the Ultrabooks are designed to give people the power to create and consume in a sleek, light, secure and elegant device that offers an immersive and responsive experience without compromising performance, all at mainstream price points.
To define the Ultrabook category, Intel began with what people want most out of their personal computing devices, both from an emotional and a rational perspective. The 2nd generation Intel Core processor family introduced last year delivers an entirely new visual computing experience as a result of improved performance and processor graphics.
Siraj also turned the spotlight on Thunderbolt technology.
A new, high-speed, dual-protocol I/O technology designed for performance, simplicity and flexibility. Thunderbolt enables high-speed storage, media capture devices and displays to all connect via a single, thin cable.
To provide the peace of mind that people desire, security features will be built into Ultrabook devices with processor-based Intel® Identity Protection technology and Intel Anti-Theft. Building on the capabilities offered today, next-generation Ultrabooks, notebooks and desktop computers can benefit from the collaborative effort between Intel and McAfee* to jointly develop a McAfee anti-theft service for Ultrabooks. Available in 2012, the McAfee solution will be the first to take advantage of unique, Intel chip-level technologies and will provide device and data protection for consumers such as device lock, data wipe and location tracking.
