At Ultrabooknews we cover the ‘thin, light and powerful’ section of the laptop market with a focus on Intel’s Ultrabooks, an in-depth view on the technologies involved and coverage of the non-Intel segments that compete.

News, Reviews, Product Database and the best Ultrabook Buyers Guide on the net.

Our in-depth reviews include very detailed videos, often done in front of a live audience.

We also focus a lot of time on databasing every Ultrabook and ultrathin on the market. Our product information pages are second to none on the web and give you a chance to review many aspects of a device, from many sources, before buying. Also available to the reader is the Ultrabook buyers advisor. For a great ‘buyers’ starting point, see this ‘What Ultrabook‘ page.
