英特尔宣布了一项新举措，推动类似的MacBook Air笔记本电脑。最初的需求是高达1.4千克的重量, 的20mm的厚度和电池寿命 5+ 小时。对于制造商有资格获得英特尔的营销钱超极本还必须有没有光驱, 一个 固态硬盘, and CULV processors.
我最近一直在寻找类似类型的笔记本电脑 - 我被要求寻找性能优良的东西, 5+ 小时的电池, 王下时, 与至少13.3“屏幕, USB3, 光驱, HDMI and VGA. 对接端口将是一个奖金。更快, 打火机, longer-battery-life the better.
I was forced to rule out any potential ultrabooks due to the lack of optical drive, and the excessive cost which results from the CULV CPU and 固态硬盘 requirements. I was also in a position to slightly relax the weight requirement compared to an ultrabook, and the thickness requirement seems rather pointless — the dimensions that matter are the width and height when it comes to space use.
I shortlisted 3 modern SandyBridge laptops as follows…
Toshiba Satellite R830-143
Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3GHz, 6Gb DDR3, 640Gb 5,400rpm 硬盘, 13.3″ 1,366×768, 1.48公斤, 316.0 X 227.0 x 18.3–26.6mm (full specs).
Price at publication time: £716.99
Acer Travelmate TimelineX 8481T-6440
Intel Core i5-2557M 1.7GHz, 4Gb DDR3, 320Gb 7,200rpm 硬盘, 14″ 1,366×768, 1.7Kg, 330 X 240 x 22mm (full specs)
Price at publication time: £824.69
Sony Vaio SB custom-config
Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3GHz, 4Gb DDR3, 320Gb 5,400rpm 硬盘, 13.3″ 1,366×768, 1.7Kg, 331 X 224.5 x 23.9mm (full specs)
Price at publication time: £759.00
In the end the Vaio got the vote. The lack of optical drive in the Acer ruled it out despite the bonus of the larger screen, which left it a 2 horse race. The Toshiba is lighter, smaller and was available for £33 less, but the Sony had the bonuses of a docking port and a 2 year warranty.
I imagine that the next generation of Core iX CPU的 (Ivy Bridge) due around the new year, will bring more laptops like this to the market. Hopefully the Intel ultrabook marketing program wont excessively limit the choices of thin-n-lights with an optical drive.
I’ve just spotted an excellent and very informative review of the Vaio SB by Anandtech
