Ultrabook price cuts on the way

Making way for the second generation


Notebook makers are expected to slash prices of first generation ultrabooks ahead of the planned Ivy Bridge launch in early Q2.

Prices of several ultrabooks from Acer, Lenovo and HP have already tumbled by up to 25 percent in the US and further cuts are expected.
