Acer, Lenovo, Sony ultrabooks hit EU in October

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Prices starting at about €800
We had a chance to see a few representatives of some top notebook brands and despite the fact we've seen many thin, aluminium and carbon based notebooks, none of them was a proper ultrabook. We have seen many of these companies at Ingram Micro recent exhibition that took place just outside of Vienna, Austria.

Currently all thin, light and carbon notebooks are much more expensive than Intel wants ultrabooks to be. A few representatives of these companies have confirmed that they expect to have ultrabooks on sale by November, some of them might show their face even in October and they will start with a price tag of about €800. This is the suggested retail price with VAT.

This is close to $999, a price set for the US market by Intel. Acer told us that despite the €800 model, there will be a €1100 to €1200 model that will feature a much better specification, telling us one more time that ultrabooks will get more expensive than you would like them to be.

Sony had something that you expect ultrabooks to evolve to in the long run, but Sony sells its Sony Vaio VPC-SA2Z9E for roughly €1900, but this superb notebook is available today. The only issue, a big issue, is the price tag. Asus representatives didn’t want to confirm the dates and prices of their new ultrabook products.
