Intel Working On Laptop Of The Future

from the oooh dept

Intel is apparently working on a laptop of the future that has some interesting features. It appears they’re going after Transmeta by offering a lower power chip that will let a single battery charge run for a day. Plus, it will include “always on” wireless internet access, though the article doesn’t specify how that works. My guess is they’re just building in 802.11a, which is useless if there are no access points any where. The article makes it out as if this is some big thing, but in the end it doesn’t appear that impressive. Lower power chips and 802.11a are nice, but not revolutionary.
