Ultrabook: From Zero to Go in Seconds

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.


Create an UltrabookTM Video Adventure

The Ultrabook is no ordinary machine–not even close. To see what we mean, check out the Ultrabook video experience. You get to choose your own path in this fun, time-travel adventure. One moment, you’re smack-dab in the middle of a Wild Western Epic, the next, you’re right there with our hero, taking on medieval knights and deadly martial artists–all with the help of his trusty, Intel-inspired Ultrabook.

But be prepared-once you’ve had a taste of the Ultrabook-inspired by Intel, everything else will seem old fashioned.

See for yourself
