Typically, laptop computers have always been matched by one of three characteristics. They could be compact, powerful, or simply run for extended periods of time on battery power. Intel introduced a new category of laptop computers last year. These were ultrabooks that surprised everyone with their lightness, thinness and high performance.
So how do you identify an Ultrabook? First of all, the ultrabook is very thin (its thickness is about 2 cm). The standard ultrabook monitor size is 13-14 inches. The ultrabook itself is quite light (its weight is up to 1.5 kg). The action in the device is very fast. So, he is able to get out of sleep mode in just 4 seconds.
The Ultrabook contains a full-size keyboard that is comfortable for both work and play. He is able to work without being connected to the power supply for at least five hours. The Ultrabook is also equipped with a second or third generation Intel® Core ™ processor. In addition to these features, the Ultrabook has the same features and functions as a regular laptop. In particular, these are wireless network access (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth and an external display. An external display is useful when the standard monitor is very small. So, you can present a file to a projector or a large TV screen.
Ultrabook development technology is very complex. New technologies have been created specifically to create these devices. In particular, Intel Rapid Start. This technology is a new sleep pattern. The novelty lies in the fact that from sleep mode the device is able to turn on for operation in just 5-6 seconds. Even if the battery is completely discharged, the system will remain in this state until power is turned on.
The next technology is Intel Smart Connect, when the device seems to be asleep in sleep mode. In other words, the ultrabook periodically wakes up in order to check mail or update any information. This condition does not apply only when the battery is on the verge of discharging. At such a moment, the Ultrabook strives, on the contrary, to save energy. And another technology – Intel Smart Response, which allows you to increase the speed of reading information by using a small and fast SSD-drive as a memory buffer.
In any case, the main goal of all these technologies and functions is to create the best possible user experience for the user. Agree, when the computer quickly ” thinks “, it can not be better!
