Could be the new Centrino
Intel CEO Paul Otellini is busy spreading the ultrabook gospel to faithful investors. On the back of another record quarter, Otellini said the ultrabook concept would be the next big thing in the notebook market.

Speaking in a conference call, Otellini said that Intel’s earlier attempt to crack the ultrathin notebook market with CULV processors was a “kind of a trial run” for ultrabooks. He argued that Intel will use an entirely different strategy with ultrabooks and work closely with partners to develop top notch products.
