Karachi, March 11, 2012– Intel Corporation unveiled its vision to re-invent mobile computing once again with introduction of a new class of device that delivers the most complete and satisfying computing experience, called the Ultrabook™.

People want to express themselves and create, whether it’s putting together an online photo scrapbook, editing the next blockbuster family movie, creating a blog, or creating music. They want to connect with others and share those creations. They also want seamless, immersive experiences, be it while playing a game, watching the latest show or movie, or simply surfing the Web, or putting the polishing touches on that big presentation. The Ultrabook device aims to deliver on these desires and more.
