Encouraging Forecasts for Ultrabooks

Notebooks and netbooks, which have been the pioneers in the field of portative devices in the recent past, are now considered to be regular gadgets available practically for all people. IT market is oversaturated with the offers from different companies that produce those devices. Growing competition makes those companies invent new strategies in the development of notebooks, providing customers with more impressive performance and stunning design. The end of 2011 and beginning of 2012 was marked by the launch of new notebook generation, the generation of ultrabooks. The mass production of ultrabooks is prognosticated for the mid 2012.


The developers of portative devices took the challenge to combine the functional characteristics of ultrabooks with their ultrafine design. Such companies as HP, Lenovo, Dell, Acer, and Asustek can be called the pathfinders in this technological sphere and their masterpieces have seen the light already in the end of 2011.

ASRock Outs N3150DC-ITX Mainboard

ASRock has gladdened all devotees of small-sized, power-efficient & sustainable PC/multimedia systems by the introduction of a mini-ITX motherboard, entitled N3150DC-ITX. The model comes equipped with a 4-core Intel Atom N3150 CPU, running at 1.6 GHz basic frequency with the possibility to overclock up to 2.08 GHz frequency. Its key privilege is a sparing TDP level – 6 W only.



ASRock N3150DC-ITX boasts a totally passive cooling: the PCB houses a noiseless heatspreader without a fan. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots which support the installation of DDR3/DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The PCB teases only top-tier hardware components, including solid-state capacitors, ELNA audio caps, etc.


Storage might be organized due to a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports and the same number of SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. A single PCI-e 2.0 x1 slot is intended for an expansion card, while mini PCI-e Express slot – for a wireless network interface module.
