Things look bleak for Intel ultrabooks

Key suppliers limit production
Rumors from the Far East indicate that things are not well with Intel's Ultrabook plans.

DigiTimes claims that Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba and Asustek are limiting the initial shipment volumes to below 50,000 units due to uncertain demand. The vendors are scheduled to begin shipping their ultrabook models later this month.

Intel is hosting a conference for ultrabooks next week in the hopes of getting more enthusiasm for the specification. However it seems that Chipzilla has not been able to convince its manufacturing partners to reduce the costs of the beasts and be a little more keen.

Intel introduced the ultrabook design specifications in May. The new laptops are meant to incorporate "tablet-like features" with a "thin, light and elegant design" without compromising on computing power and performance. The big idea was that they should remain in the sub-$1,000 price range.
