Long Battery Life: The Ultrabooks designed and speccified by Intel. were designed to provide long battery life of at least 5 to 8 hours for these Ultrabook. This is really a very drastic advantage over other laptops or notebooks.

Super-Fast (SSD) Solid State Drive: These SSD drives are not so heavy but are very fast. It doesn’t contain any moving parts, thus it can withstand the wear and tear. These SSD Drives will make these Ultrabooks to boot up your Windows operating system in less than 20 seconds, and resume from sleep mode from 2 seconds to almost instantly.

No optical drive: The optical drives like optical DVD and Blu-Ray drives increased the machines thickness and weight. They even consumed the battery life quickly. Hence, they were removed and newer technologies like USB 3.0, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Cloud storage etc. were introduced to enhance the functionalities of Ultrabook.
