Intel Forecasts Availability of Clamshells by December and 2 More Heavily Traded Stocks to Follow
Intel Corp. (NASDAQ:INTC): Current price $22.83
At Intel’s developer conference in San Francisco, the chief of its personal computer endeavors, Kirk Skaugen, was among the keynote speakers charged with showing that the computer can remain relevant while tablets and smartphones seem to dominate. Skaugen said Intel first debuted its vision of thin and light notebook computers, ultrabooks, in the summer 2011, and that the concept of having touch-based control of a laptop screen was only an idea last summer. Skaugen forecast that by the holidays, clamshell-shaped machines without touch control will be available for only $199, touch-based clamshells will go for as little as $299, and two-in-one devices will start at $349.
