Hardware Central: "Intel today broadened its number of ultra-low voltage processors (ULV) to include a complete range, from Celeron to Core i7, for the super-thin laptop market. This announcement builds on Intel's January introduction of laptop processors, which included only a few low-end ULV processors."
LinuxDevices: "The Xeon Processor 5600 series also includes the chipmaker's first six-core embedded processors, plus a dual-core processor for "micro servers" that has a TDP of only 30 Watts, the company says."
opinsys: "A few months ago we had a blog entry about shared and personal laptops in schools. The goal of shared laptops is basically that they should behave mostly like shared thin clients: it should not matter which a computer any user chooses to work with."
Blog of Helios: "Over the past few weeks, we've received a number of quality laptops to give out to our kids. Unfortunately many of these laptops did not come with power adapters and pretty much qualify for doorstops."
The H Open: "Improvements include graphics drivers for recent Radeon GPUs and for the graphics cores of some Intel processors that are only expected to be released early next year. Another new addition is the LogFS SSD file system."
Hardware Central: "But there are still some applications, such as massive calculations or data searches and sorts, where Step B requires the results of Step A, and in that case, a single 5GHz core will get you there faster than two 2.5GHz cores."
LinuxDevices: "Intel will launch its first dual-core Atom processor for netbooks and other mobile devices during the third quarter, Fudzilla claims. The N550 will be clocked at 1.5GHz, have 512KB of second-level cache per core, and offer an 8.5 Watt TDP, Fuad Abazovic writes."
