The company will be working to evolve the machine sooner as the plans are to include “Ivy Bridge” processors , 3D transistors and the thunderbolt technology in the coming 52 weeks or so.
A new generation of computing is set to be launched through the machines like the ultra book and the Chromebook which are all promoting the cloud computing technologies at quite a low cost. A go-go deal for sure but still quite a number of miles to go for dominance.
