2008 Notebook Trends

November 5, 2007

We’re going to see more notebooks with displays that are optimized and sized for high definition viewing. For example, wide aspect notebook displays typically have a 16:10 width to height ratio, while we’ll see a crop of newer notebooks coming out with 16:9 ratios (for example 1366*768) that are optimized for viewing HD movies, TV shows or videos on your notebook.

– Of course, standard hard drive sizes will continue to increase

– We’ll also see more laptops optimized for entertainment uses, such as gaming, watching widescreen HD movies, and connecting with stereo systems.

– Although it’s still happening slowly, we’ll see more notebook PCs bundled with integrated mobile internet access offered by wireless phone providers. Wi-Fi is great for many users, but some users want built-in wireless roaming connectivity and now with the cell phone providers building out their 3G networks, it’s more feasible than ever before.
