Wants to see wider adoption of ultra-thin sales

Intel has chosen to hold off until at least Q3 of this year before it will unveil its next family of ultra-thin notebook processors; this due to Acer's decision to halt production on its next line-up of ultra-thin notebooks due to poor sales figures on previous ulta-thin models.




Further backing Intel's decision is a gathering of sales results on ultra-thin models from all major players in the ultra-thin notebook market worldwide. While in Taiwan and China they're shifting at a respectable rate, worldwide shows a different picture and predicted sales for 2009 of 20-30% were far from met at only 10-15% of actual sales made.
