Navigating the New Ultrabooks - Page 2
When to Buy
If you are an early adopter of technology, I bet you’ve already looked at the current ultrabooks available at your favorite computer store. But if you are one to wait until technology proves itself, you can feel comfortable basing your buying decision on either lower price or touch functionality. Lower price will probably show up around back-to-school season. Currently, ultrabooks start at around $800, but could possibly drop to $600 or less by August or September, making them around the price of or lower than laptops. If you want to wait for touch functionality, start keeping track of Windows 8. Once Windows 8 goes to market and is able to support touch, many providers will develop ultrabooks with touch functionalities based on the Windows 8 operating system.
