Originally formed by Intel to compete with Apple’s MacBook Air, an Ultrabook is a power-efficient clamshell computer intended for portability rather than explicitly for performance.
To make them slender and sleek, Ultrabooks take advantage of faster and typically lower capacity SSDs rather than those bulky hard drives. At the same time, Intel promises on providing CPUs that consume less of a power. Today, we’re going to talk about the 5 best Ultrabooks of 2017 for you to choose from:
