Intel's Ultrabook platform will be touching new heights of popularity by next year. In the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) of 2012 in January a number of manufacturers are expected to launch new Ultrabook notebooks.

Most probably, 50 new different types of Ultrabooks will see the light of the day in CES 2012. As per the CES organisers they are hoping various companies to unveil 30 to 50 latest models of Ultrabook notebooks.

Going by the trend of economy this flooding will lead to availability of cheaper models of Ultrabook. In fact, there are also rumours of availability of touchscreen Windows 8 Ultrabooks by next year. Hopefully, CES will be the platform through which some of the touchscreen Ultrabook models may find their way to the market, reported Geeky Gadgets (opens in new tab).
