Notebooks manufacturers have bet on the experience of a tablet PC which is known as the 2 in 1 and are found in the evolutionary line of Ultrabooks, so Intel decided to take time in the IDF to comment on these systems. The second keynote was dedicated to Bay Trail, a commitment by Intel to compete in the field of tablets, laptops and 2 in 1 all in one desktops.
According to Intel, Bay Trail will offer better performance and energy consumption, and will be divided into three categories: T, M and D (tablets, laptops and desktop PCs respectively). For the tablet market the Atom Z3000 will be launched which can last up to 10 hours of continuous use and has up to four cores. It is optimized for Windows and Android for 7 to 11.6 inch systems.
Pricewise, Intel said that prices for tablets with Bay Trail T start at $199. Regarding its 2 in 1 notebooks, the Bay Trail M comes with Pentium N3000 and Celeron N2000 and will NOT use a fan. Prices for these devices start at $199, but expect to pay $250 for touchscreen notebook and U.S. $349 for the 2 in 1 devices.
Finally we have to Bay Trail D. The Bay Trail D is intended for basic equipment, small in size, also for devices that are used in specific functions such as smart displays. The price of these devices start at $119.
About the availability, it is expected that the supply of Bay Trail will ship at the last quarter of this year on different computers. What do you think?, Are interested in Bay Trail?
