The NEO Edge Ultrabook is launching in the Philippines as the one of the lowest cost Ultrabooks with a DVD Drive, apparently
At PHP33,999 it translates to around $925. We’re not sure if that price includes a local sales tax but we think the Acer Aspire TimelineU M3 might come in a little cheaper. Still, at 1.8KG, it’s definitely lighter than the TimelineU M3.
The main story here is that we’re seeing 2nd-tier brands with Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks now. We have about 10 different local brands in the database already and we suspect it will be almost impossible to find out about all of them. [Please, if you see something in your own country, and I know that people from 130 countries visited us yesterday, let us know.] but we’ll try our best.
Intel say that there will be 110 Ultrabooks with Ivy Bridge. We’re looking forward to getting them in the database!
