VMUltra: a hard-drive, DVD player and card reader all-in-one

What is the biggest failure of a ultrabook? The lack of CD / DVD. Of course, the use of such a drive has greatly decreased in recent years but remains essential even if only to encode a CD or play a DVD on the go. Velocity Micro has designed a unit specifically dedicated to ultra-thin computer that combines a DVD player, a hard drive (500 GB), a card reader and even a hub with three USB 2.0 ports.

€ 140 with a 500 GB hard drive

This unit is self-powered for most of its functions, except for what is the DVD player. It will then connect to the sector for it to work. Another possibility, that of changing the external hard drives for any other model 2.5 ". The manufacturer seems to have treated the design as the device appears compact and comfortable to handle. The VMUltra will be marketed in the U.S. next February at a price of $ 180 (about € 140). No release date in Europe has yet been mentioned.
