Smart Power & Beauty
Ultrabooks let you tackle your todo’s in a stylish way. Select models come with advanced touchscreens to put Windows 8’s new interface at your fingertips.
Setting a new standard for speed, Ultrabooks effortlessly run all your software, apps, and devices. Many models also break new ground in responsiveness, such as when you tap a key to wake up your laptop or double-click an icon to launch an application.
What’s more, Ultrabooks are slim, portable, and easy to carry around at work or school. They also offer long battery life, so you can keep working when AC power is scarce.
No More “Record Player” Optical Drive
A crucial hallmark of the Ultrabook category is freedom from the legacy technologies of the past. Specifically, most Ultrabooks ditch the bulky, decades-old CD drive sometimes jokingly referred to as a “record player” or “cupholder.” With no flimsy CD tray to break, and no more scratch-prone discs to worry about, you’ll be able to fully enjoy the convenience of digital downloads when you install new applications. You’ll also be ready to back up your files using online cloud storage services, which can be much faster and less expensive than CD-Rs or DVD-Rs. (Of course, you can easily connect a USB optical drive to your Ultrabook should the need ever arise.)
Goodbye To Fragile Hard Disk Drives
An old-fashioned hard drive can be damaged during the daily shuffle. That’s why many Ultrabooks come outfitted with a tough, reliable solidstate drive. SSDs have no moving parts, so they’re more robust than hard drives and hybrid drives. An SSD can also accelerate an Ultrabook’s startup time, so you’ll no longer have to wait several minutes to start using your computer. Applications can launch much faster from an SSD, too. There’s enough storage capacity on most Ultrabook SSDs to easily hold all of your apps and personal files, but you can always plug in an external hard drive for additional room for music, photos, presentations, and more.
