The second wave of ultrabooks is set to launch at the Consumer Electronics Show next year and it will include the first designs from HP, Samsung and Dell. In addition, several vendors who have already launched ultrabooks are expected to refresh their lineups at the show.

Digitimes reckons that anywhere from 30 to 50 ultrabook models will appear at CES and they are expected to be the hottest thing in early 2012.
