Ultrabooks to account for 40% of all notebooks by 2015 – report

According to IHS, formerly known as iSuppli, Intel's Ultrabook initiative will account for more than 40% of all notebook shipments by 2015, PC Magazine has reported. IHS projects rapid growth for the Ultrabook category, which the research firm said accounted for less than 1% of notebook shipments in 2010, and projected to account just below 2% of the market this year. But Ultrabooks will make up nearly 12% of laptops in 2012, according to IHS, and the category's penetration will shoot up to better than 28% in 2013, nearly 38% in 2014, and about 43% by 2015.
