          UltraBook – Phase 3 ?


 Original Plan – Intel wanted to use Haswell &
 Westmere Micro mobile processors

 Microsoft threw a wrench into Intel’s $300
 million plans
            “Da” Wrench or Win 8

 Microsoft decided to integrate Windows Phone 7.5
  (Mango) and Xbox into Windows 8.
 Intel you lose and RISC you win
 RISC – Reduced Instruction Chip Set
 ARM – Advance RISC Machine – ARM Holdings.
 Microsoft Win 8 was designed to complete with Apple’s iOS
 and Google’s Android and not the traditional x86/x64
 processors or software equipment
              Intel Yelled “Rape”


 Microsoft just trashed Phase 3 of Intel’s 300 million
  dollar plan, so Microsoft could save the world from
  Google and Apple.
 After a bloody battle, Microsoft relented to a
  x86/x64 version of Windows 8. The caveat is that
  Phase 3 must be RISC by 2015.
 Now everyone is happy, because Intel had a RISC
  Chip in waiting – Medfield.
              Why - UltraBooks

 Simple – PC sales fell from 650 million (2006) to
  less that 200 million. RISC based devices sell 1.2
  billion in yearly. Money talks, x86 gets out and
  walks.
 The end goal is to have a sexy Laptop that will go
  heads on with Apple and Google.
 Intel has cuddled up with Google and the Medfield
  Chip is now certified for Android 2.3, 3.2 and 4.0.
 Now lets see the sparks fly.
