Who needs an ultra-book?
Not everyone really needs an ultrabook. That’s why you’ll always continue to find those heavy-weight monster laptops that serve as desktop replacements, the ultra-powerful and glittery gaming laptops, and even the traditional low-cost laptops that you can buy in the Rs. 30O price-range.
So the question now boils down to who really needs an ultrabook. So, in this story, we’ve done a complete round-up of ultrabooks, featuring some 30+ of them for working professionals, travelers, and even the budget conscious who aspire to buy stylish looking laptops but can’t afford them.
Powerful ultra-books for professionals – Professionals from business and IT need powerful notebooks and that is the reason why weak netbooks fell short of their expectations. For the ultra-books to avoid a similar fate, they have been muscled with the best and latest machinery. Intel’s Core i7 processor with 6GB RAM along with security features makes them not only robust from inside but also on the outside. Ultra-books use SSD for boot-ups and so in just 5 seconds it can be ready for use. The ultra-books are available in 15 inches as well and their HD displays are a sight. However, most lack an optical drive. Who needs them anyway?
Long lasting ultra-books for travellers- Working while travelling has numerous constraints, of which a long lasting battery is the most critical. A long battery life is required in smartphones, tablets and notebooks and now the same question is being asked about the ultrabooks. In relation to notebooks, ultra-books have much longer battery back-up. The Rapid Start Technology from Intel helps in fast wake-up and this saves power consumption when the ultra-book is in sleep mode. Some ultra-books deliver more than 8-9 hours and that alone will make it a traveller’s companion.
Aspiring Budget Conscious Buyer - It is no secret that ultra-books are expensive and until recently, most ultrabooks started from Rs 60k, but not anymore. The higher pricing can be understood because of the ground-breaking components being used, but for an average buyer price plays a decisive role. Far from being a niche product for the rich, ultra-book is now seen as a smart kin to notebook available at a smart price.
