Bangs the drum for thin-and-light notebook initiative, says that ever more manufacturers are climbing aboard.

Intel says 75 ultrabook models in the pipe

Intel said that there are more than 75 models of ultrabook designs set to arrive this year, with 26 already on sale and that devices costing US$699 will appear.

"Industry momentum continues to scale in the Ultrabook category with 26 different models now available for purchase in various markets around the world," Intel spokeswoman Becky Emmett blogged.

Pointing out that Intel’s super thin and light notebook category is a "mere 9 months old", Emmett said that PC makers worldwide were adding several more ultrabook designs to their product range.

Dell XPS, HP Spectre and Toshiba Portege were a number of new models added in addition to the 26 which were already on sale. Emmett went on to say that other manufacturers "Fujitsu, Gigabyte, Lenovo and Acer among many others" were joining Intel’s ultrabook initiative with models to arrive this year.

Most of the 75 new models will doubtless arrive with the launch of Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge, due at the end of the month. Coincidentally the same month as Intel unleashes a barrage of ‘epic cinematic’ advertising.

The chip giant also says that models priced as low as US$699 will also appear. That’ll probably translate to around ¬£549 by our estimation.
