Chinese device maker Teso is now offering an ultrabook with an 11.6 inch display, an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, and a detachable keyboard. The Teso K116 showed up at business-to-business sales site Alibaba recently.
The list price is between $400 and $600 per unit… but that’s the price for distributors looking to order 1000 or more computers to resell at higher prices.
In other words, we don’t know the real retail price for the Teso K116 yet, and odds are it will be sold under a different brand name if and when it shows up on store shelves.
Since Ivy Bridge processors aren’t expected to ship for another month or two, it will probably be a while before we know the final specifications for this computer.
In order to qualify as an ultrabook, a computer needs to meet certain requirements set by Intel. For instance it needs to have an Intel Sandy Bridge or later processor. It needs to use a solid state disk or hard drive with solid state cache for storage. And typically ultrabooks weigh less than 4 pounds and measure less than 0.8 inches thick.
According to the Alibaba listing, the Teso K116 has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel capacitive, multitouch display, up to 4GB of RAM, and a solid state disk with between 16GB and 128GB of storage.
The PC will be able to run Windows 7 or Windows 8.
One of the key features that sets it apart from most ultrabooks on the market today is the detachable keyboard which lets you use the Teso K116 either as a notebook or as a tablet. That makes sense for a product that’s designed to run Windows 8 as well as Windows 7, since Microsoft’s next-generation operating system will feature a new touch-friendly user interface.
