Ultra-thin notebook computers to replace the functions of the Internet of the lack of
July 2009 Intel CEO Paul Otellini said, " ultra-thin laptop "(ultra-thins) to give users low-costNetbook(Netbook) The lack of functionality. Intel constantly promote the idea again and again on various occasions , attempt to boost profits better than the thin line of the notebook .
Ultra-thin notebook is also a low-cost laptop , but usually have 13 -inch screen , Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) chip ; cheap online version of this 11 -inch screen, usually less , with the Intel price lower , performance is also lowerAtomProcessor .
Several executives have echoed the statement of Intel , Otellini said in reply to an analyst question , ultra-thin notebooks to make up for the shortcomings of the Internet . Users to play online the top3DGame, or trying to implement the Office application , you will find a fairly slow speed of execution , but not just the processor , but the whole structure.
If the want is a thin and light notebook PCs , they do not want to select only the Internet in this case, might choose a more functional , but cheap laptop prices .
Low consumer awareness of this deep-rooted Internet , combined with ultra-thin notebooks higher prices , such as Acer Aspire TimelineSell 699 U.S. dollars a make ultra-thin notebooks of unknown position in the market .
Gamers PC maker Falcon Northwest CEO Kelt Reeves said: "When first introduced ultra-thin computer , many people glance at said: ' Oh, this is a netbook . ' No, it is only in the size close to the Internet This , however, much stronger functionality . "
Investment bank Collins Stewart analyst Ashok Kumar said , Windows 7 probably will not help consumers distinguish the differences , because the "Windows 7 even in a 199 U.S. dollars in the Internet the last , also operating very well . "Kumar believes that Intel To access this guide is consumer awareness and the ultra-thin notebook , I am afraid not easy.
Otellini reviving the so-called swallow effect (cannibalization) - means the Internet may erode the mainstream notebook market share . The Intel CEO and predicted that the Internet this may become increasingly popular wireless Wang3GInternet access , bundled together with the telecommunications service contracts . He believes that this could account for their performance in a large part of the 2010 .[5 ]
Ultra-thin notebook PC market forecast
According to Taiwan's Digitimes Research , said market research firm , expects 2009 global shipments of ultra-thin notebook is only 600 million units , accounting for the global notebook PC shipments by 4% .
Digitimes Research senior analyst Joanne Chien said that while the ultra-thin notebook computersBatteryLong service life , and has more low profile , but their prices will weaken with the Internet and some of the primary entry in this traditional competition between notebook computers .
Joanne Chien表示, on price and performance ratio , the ultra-thin notebooks, components of the price, higher than most standard parts , Danshitamen of Gongzuo performance has slightly better than netbooks .
Because Europe and North America on the ultra-thin notebook computers continued weakness in demand , so even if HP (HP) and Dell in the fourth quarter of their ultra-slim computer, ultra-thin notebook computer shipments market is not likely to be significantly improved.[6 ]
