Intel, and its industry partners, are hoping that their new class of portable computers known as Ultrabooks will win back some of the market share that has been lost to tablet-culture and the Macbook Air.
Earlier today Notebook Italia posted the first concrete details about the Ultrabook class of notebooks when they discovered that a Italian computer retailer, MonClick, had published a product page listing one – the Acer Ultrabook S3 – a bit too early.
MonClick lists the Acer Ultrabook S3 as having a Intel Core i5-2467M, 4GB RAM, a 320GB hard drive and a 20GB SSD.
The listed price that MonClick has is $786 Euros, which works out to about $1,100 canuck-bucks. However things tend to have a higher retail price in Europe than they do in North America, so this will likely be in the sub-$1000 price range when it hits shelves in Canada.
What do you think? Is this the Macbook Air killer than Intel purports it is?
