We’ve all been there. An urgent project, an important email, changing flight information…whatever the case, we need our computer fast. We push the button and the little tone music goes off and…boom, nothing. And we wait and wait and wait and…still we wait.
Computers can take what seems like forever to boot up. Why? When a computer boots up, it goes through of series of tests before it searches for and loads the operating system. Most computers don’t have the power or speed to do this efficiently. However, the new Ultrabook™ can handle a boot-up with ease.
You can get to your desktop in seconds on the Ultrabook because it uses a flash memory Intel Solid-State Drive (SSD) paired with Intel’s Rapid Start technology. With traditional PCs it takes a minute or longer. Those extra minutes can really seem like forever, which makes for a less than optimal experience for you.
Unlike more traditional drives, the SSD has no moving parts to slow down its performance. This design results in a quieter, cooler, more rugged drive that offers up to 66% faster system responsiveness than traditional hard disk drives.
Intel® Rapid Start Technology returns your Ultrabook to full operational power within seconds, so you can jump right back into everything you were doing. This responsive capability gives your device the power to resume in a flash when you’re ready, and low power consumption when on standby. So you’ll save time and get longer battery life.
