Intel has unveiled design guidelines for a new category of thin-and-light laptops, dubbed "Ultrabooks," that take cues from Apple's iPad and MacBook Air.
According to Engadget, Intel detailed the new designs at the Computex trade show. Ultrabooks will have the performance and capacities of a laptop with "tablet-like features" in a "thin, light and elegant design," according to Executive Vice President Sean Maloney.
Intel says Ivy Bridge processor designs will be available at 1st half of 2012, and Haswell in 2013.
