Lack Of Innovation
Vendors in the PC space, from Lenovo to Intel, have lamented the lack of innovation around the PC and over the last year have tried to infuse the market with slimmer, sexier form factors, from Ultrabooks to sleek all-in-one (AIO) desktops. But, the results have been a bit mixed so far. While AIO systems have been growing for Lenovo and Intel, among others, Ultrabooks have been slower to take off despite the considerable marketing effort around the ultra-thin notebook category. Intel is hoping to remedy that by lowering the price of Ultrabooks while also bringing new features like voice and facial recognition technology to new models later this year. But will it work?
