The Ultimate Intel® Inspired Convertible Ultrabook™ has Launched
Today, you can get an Ultrabook™ convertible. A laptop when you need a tablet when you want it.
What does that mean? The Intel inspired Ultrabook™ and Intel process based tablets deliver a full range of new, amazing experiences with all your existing apps and devices because Intel Architecture uniquely runs the full version Windows 8.
People will have access to the new user interface, start screen, live tiles and apps in the Windows store. And — because it’s running on Intel — you can still use the applications you already own in the familiar desktop, like your favorite Microsoft office and applications for music, photos and work — not to mention peripherals like printers and scanners. It’s the best of both worlds.
Touch: Some of the latest Ultrabooks now have touchscreens, and when combined with a touch-friendly redesign of Windows, users have more options at their fingertips. Our research shows people will find it faster, easier, intuitive, and fun. Touch transforms the computing experience from work to play.
In addition to the new touch-friendly user interface from Microsoft, touch capabilities are made possible thanks to the work of Intel and the device manufacturers to optimize their new line-up for a fast, fluid touch experience.
2-in-1 devices that convert from PC to Tablet: Thanks to touch capabilities, device makers like ASUS, Dell, Lenovo, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba have gotten very creative in their designs. Why not have a full computing experience when you need to be productive and creative, and convert to a tablet when you want to watch a movie or play with a mobile app? Each company have found unique ways to do this differently. There are now computers that transform from clamshell to tablet mode via swivels, flips, ferris wheel-like turns, slides and more. Hard to imagine? Check out the pictures below to see a few of the devices in action.
