ULTRABOOK TOUCH FROM ACER, ASUS AND LENOVO
ULTRABOOK TOUCH FROM ACER, ASUS AND LENOVO - The first touch ultrabook will be signed by Asus, Acer and Lenovo. Will be equipped with operating system Windows 8 and will have a new design to better exploit the panel and touch gestures.
In order to take advantage of the touch features of Windows 8, notebook manufacturers have sought to provide the ultrabook touch. Implementing a touch-sensitive display will result, however, an increase in the thickness of the notebook to at least 0.7-1.5 cm and in a higher cost of production, just when the objective of companies is to save on the components to propose ultrabook at prices always lower. According to Taiwanese sources , to circumvent these problems, manufacturers will launch the new concept of model ultrabook touch convertible from July to August 2012.
The manufacturer of hinges for laptops, in particular, have highlighted that the existing design “shell” of ultrabook could cause problems to the LCD panel, subject to movement while the user is using the touch panel. The solution would be to strengthen the two hinges, gripping, but in this way there would be a new drawback, ie the lifting of the base during the use of the touch screen. For these reasons, therefore, companies have decided to adopt a new concept ultrabook order to fully utilize the touch screen functions.
The sources revealed that the top producers will be Lenovo, Asus and Acer, which already have plans to launch a convertible ultrabook in 2012. Recall that the Chinese company has already presented his creation to the public at CES 2012, promising to launch IdeaPad Yoga by the second half of the year. Most of the design are convertible models with screens rotatable,ie capable of transforming a ultrabook into a tablet, but are not eslude the possibility of adopting the sliding display.
