Ultrabook Conga Line Preps for CES 2012

If 2011 was The Year of Too Many Tablets, 2012 may well be the year of Too Many Ultrabooks.

Shawn DuBravac, Chief Economist and Director of Research for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), says we’ll see a flood of Ultrabook unveilings at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

How many? More than anyone can reasonably keep track of.

“We expect to see 30 to 50 new Ultrabooks launched at CES,” he told PC Pro.

That’s a lot of Ultrabooks. ’Course, that number will still be dwarfed by 2012′s deluge of tablets, which is once again expected to be around 100.
