Renewed competition in Windows laptops

The MacBook Air finally has some serious competition with the first of the new Ultrabook laptops being launched here at the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.

After Toshiba unveiled what it claimed was the world’s thinnest and lightest 13.3in laptop on Thursday – the Portege Z830 - Acer followed up on Friday with the Aspire S3, which boasts 1.5 seconds start-up time from a sleep state that can last 50 days on its long-life battery.

Lenovo also produced an Ultrabook entrant with the U300s – a 13.3in laptop clad in aluminum and featuring an eight-hour battery and 30 days’ standby capabilities.
