CyberPower Takes On Ultrabook Market with Customizable Zeus-M Series
The Zeus-M starts off with an Intel Core i5-3317U Ivy Bridge dual-core CPU and HM77 chipset. A 60GB SSD handles data storage and 8GB of memory round out the system. The laptop has a 14.1-inch display and comes in at under an inch thick. CyberPower says the laptop weighs less than four pounds. The Zeus-M2 starts a little stronger with 16GB of memory and a 128GB SSD but the same processor as the Zeus-M.
Other features include three USB 3.0 ports, Bluetooth, and 24-bit 2-channel audio. Also, the systems include free lifetime phone support. You’ll find Intel Smart Connect in all Zeus-M ultrabooks, too. Smart Connect lets your system download email, social network updates and other data while the ultrabook’s lid is closed and the system is asleep.
CyberPower puts Windows 7 Home Premium on its Zeus-M ultrabooks and pegs the Zeus-M’s battery life at up to seven hours of use and “several days” of standby. Ultrabook prices are dropping pretty quickly these days: both of the Zeus-M laptops start at prices well under the $1,000 mark. The Zeus-M starts at $699, while the more-powerful Zeus-M2 rings in at $799.
