From Wired UK:

Intel announced plans on Monday for a new series of slim laptops powered by the company's next-generation processors, set to debut at the end of 2011.

Dubbed the "Ultrabook," the skinny devices measure in at less than an inch thick, cost less than $1,000, (£607) and will initially run on Intel's second-generation core chips.

In the first half of 2012, Ultrabooks will run on Intel's "Ivy Bridge" chipset, the world's first mass-produced 3D-transistor-based chipset using Intel's 22-nanometer etching process.

"Our customers are demanding an uncompromised computing experience in a lightweight, highly portable design that responds to their needs quickly," said Asus executive chairman Jonney Shih, whose company is producing one of the first Ultrabooks, the UX21.
