Back in 2011, Intel Capital, Intel's investment arm in support of their strategic objectives, ponied-up a cool $300 million to help give birth to a new class of notebooks they defined as "Ultrabooks."  Though there aren't a complete set if design specifications, Intel requires certain characteristics of performance, mechanical design, battery life and processor component selection, in order to market a notebook as an Ultrabook. From resume from hibernation response times to chassis thickness, Intel wanted to build upon Apple's success with the MacBook Air, so that all of their OEM and ODM partners could get in on the thin, sleek and sexy trend that's becoming all the rage with consumers.

Today Intel is lifting the embargo veil off of a number of Core i5 dual-core Ivy Bridge processors for both the desktop and mobile segments.  In terms of mobile products, Ultrabooks remain the clear focus for Intel and as such we've been setup with a demonstration vehicle for the new Core i5-3427U Ultra mobile processor that Intel is launching today...



What follows is a look at Intel's latest Ultrabook vision and the shape of things to come in no-compromise highly mobile computing according to Intel.

Oh man I would never have imagined playing Arkham City on an ultrabook, but it seems possible. Just gotta wait for the price points on these bad boys.
