I’m sure many of you have been in and looked around the product database. We’ve kept it up to date with every Ultrabook and it’s been extremely popular. 20% of our site traffic is now going to the database.
Over the last year we’ve built tools around the database to try and make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for but today I updated the interactive list with a couple of new features that will help you navigate through the next wave of Ultrabooks that will be offering more features in new form factors.
There are 106 Ultrabooks and ultrathins in our database now, 69 of which are true Ultrabooks. Along with the specifications of each device we include links to videos, news and reviews along with images, a related products list, comments, some notes and a short overview. Where prices are available we list the RRP and for those of you in the USA, UK or Germany, you’ll see the latest price at Amazon too. [Buying through those links is your way to help keep Ultrabooknews growing and developing!] I’ve also enabled a trend graph which (it needs a week to stabilise after our test data was fed in) gives you an idea of the popularity and growth in terms of reader interest.
Your starting point for Ultrabook research is here and today I’ve added some new selectors that will help as the new range of touch options and form factors start to feed in. Wait for the list to load and type ‘acer’ to see all the acer devices. Click on the weight column to sort by weight, or the CPU Operating System column to sort that. Pull down the Form Factor chooser to select Sliders or Convertibles and even choose your Touchscreen type. It’s all instant!
We’ll add more selectors as we go forward.
Inside tip: We’ve got a very rough but complete selector page here where you can drill down into a number of different specifications. Want a Core i7, 13.3” with DisplayPort? You’ll find it here. Note, this is an Alpha page that needs a lot of tidying up. It’s working though so there’s no reason to keep it hidden from you.
What other features or selectors would you like to see on the database?
We know that the compare function isn’t working at the moment. It’s on our list! Update: Compare function is now working.
