“With Ultrabook City, we intend to elevate the consumer Ultrabook experience to a new level of excitement in a unique retail setting unlike any other we’ve done before,” said Prakash Mallya (pic, right), country manager of sales and marketing, Intel Malaysia.
Shoppers can also try to win their very own Ultrabook via the Ultrabook Temptations and Intel’s Catch & Win Contest.
Ultrabook Temptations challenges customers to demonstrate as much excitement as possible to win an Ultrabook at the new outlet.
Catch & Win is an interactive mobile app challenge where consumers capture Ultrabook code markers around Plaza Low Yat to stand a chance win an Ultrabook every two weeks.
Ultrabook Temptations will run until July 29 whilst the Catch & Win Contest will end on Sept 16.
“The Ultrabook City is a unique retail experience that will definitely bring Ultrabooks directly to our customers here in Plaza Low Yat.” said Michael Lee, general manager, Property Management and Operations, Plaza Low Yat.
