D&H Demos, Dealers Rate Ultrabooks At Distributor’s Fall Tech Show


D&H Distributing
gave retailers an early look at five different
models of the new Ultrabook laptop
format and had them rank them.

At the D&H Mid-Atlantic Fall 2011
Technology Show, held here earlier this
month, D&H set up an Ultrabook Demo
Zone where dealers, retailers and etailers
could test out each of the models
on display. Attendees were then asked
to rank the units according to which was
most stylish, most innovative, most versatile
and most user-friendly.

“Our ability to provide a side-by-side
sampling of units this early in the emergence
of the category is a pretty exciting
proposition,” said Mary Campbell,
marketing VP at D&H. “We love being
able to deliver these unique opportunities
to our customers, along with handson
knowledge of hundreds of other new
products. It’s a thank you for their loyalty
and their business. Yet this kind of
nascent product knowledge helps them
grow, which is beneficial for all of us.”

The distributor said the results were
based on attendee responses at the
event, and not by D&H Distributing itself.

The models tested were the Lenovo
IdeaPad U300s (available), the Asus
Zenbook UX21E (available), Acer’s
Aspire S3 (available) and the Toshiba
Z835 (not yet available).

One of the notebooks, the Aspire S3,
is also a 2012 CES Innovation Awards
