The Macbook Air Is Cheaper Than The Intel “Ultrabook” Platform For PC

| July 29, 2011 | Reply

Intel unveiled the Ultrabook platform earlier this year in hopes to make ultra-sleek ultra-fast PC’s to compete with the Macbook Air. There are plenty of thin and light notebooks out there, but nothing really close to the Macbook’s sleek looks and performance. Now as they are finally ready to compete, companies like Asus are saying they cannot compete with the low price of the Macs. Sounds like it makes no sense, right? Apple usually charges a premium for their product – Not in this case, as the base price for the Macbook Air is about $1000 while the new ultrabook will be about $1300. Is it finally coming to the time where Apple will start to keep hardware costs on par with PC? I doubt it as far as desktops go, but in the thin and light notebook area, I’d say yes.
