On an earnings call yesterday, Paul Otellini, CEO of Intel, told journalists that Ultrabooks would reach $699 by ‘fall’ – Q4 of this year. Does he not read Ultrabooknews? Ultrabooks are already selling for under $699. Take the Acer Aspire Timeline M5 for example.
Acer Europe is offering a free upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for Ultrabook customers. Micrsoft is already running a promotion with most major computer companies to offer upgrades to Windows 8 Pro for $14.99 for most new computers, but if you buy an Ultrabook between June 2nd, 2012 and January 13th, 2013 Acer will refund the cost of the upgrade.
Acer America has just announced two new Ultrabooks as part of a new ‘Timeline Ultra’ series. On offer is a 14″ and 15.6″ display, the latter of which has a full numpad on the keyboard. The bezels appear to be nice and thin but the resolution leaves much to be desired. Discrete graphics from Nvidia are included as well as optical drives. Both come in at rather affordable prices, but we’re unsure that the inclusion of the optical drive is such a great idea.
