Intel's vision for notebooks

It doesnt seem like Intel has any issues sharing their vision and roadmap for not only their chips, but for how future notebooks will look like and what functionality they'll include. So lets take a look at their presentation guidelines intended for laptop manufacturers to follow: Intel's Core M processor - thin, light laptops, tablets, and 2-in-1 hybrids, fan-less devices that measure less than 0.35 inches (9mm) and weighing about 1.4 lbs (0.6 kg). Core M will be released this Christmas and brand names like HP, Dell, Asus, and Lenovo will each release their new designs.

 In addition, Intel wants notebooks to include 3D sensors/cameras so that users can capture motion and be able to create 3D models from images.

Intel's Developer Ultrabook leaked via FCC reveal a 360-degree hinged notebook powered by their upcoming Broadwell processor. This is a 13.3-inch 3K resolution screen (3200 x 1800 pixels) featuring multi-touch (includes N-Trig DuoSense Pen 2 active pen). Two cameras (one as a 3D camera/sensor), 8GB RAM, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0, WiDi 5.0 wireless display, LTE radio support, fingerprint reader, 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, card reader slot, and a backlit keyboard:

And here's Intel's chip lineup for January 2015:

Followed by Intel's Skylake CPU chips to be released on July 2015:
