Panel issues are causing production bottlenecks for Utlrabooks and ultra-thin laptops.


Santa Clara, Calif. – The Ultrabook and ultra-thin notebook categories are being hindered by a lack of ultra-slim and touch-capable panels, according to an NPD DisplaySearch report.

Richard Shim, a senior analyst for NPD DisplaySearch, said design demands for the super-thin panels tied to unproven consumer desires for touch on notebooks is forcing panel makers to shy away from manufacturing large amounts of this specialized glass. Instead these factories are maintaining their focus on creating touchscreens for the tablet and smartphone markets.
