| Laptops News | Posted: Aug 30, 2011 1:09 am

ASUS have confirmed they will release 6 different Ultrabooks in October, where they'll have their own product launch conference in New York. Prices will range from US$899 to US$1999 according to ASUS chairman Jonney Shih. Jonney hinted at the price drop in key components of the Ultrabook such as panels and DRAM has enabled them to lower the overall cost of Ultrabooks and with HP leaving its PC business and Dell and Toshiba not really interested in Ultrabooks, it leaves ASUS and Acer to grab the wheel for the Ultrabook market.
