P4EE follows P4 into notebooks

Do you remember how it was with notebooks on desktop Pentium 4 processors? Intel first prohibited then permitted them... And no one thought that on November 4 a new turn of this epic will start. But still this happened: it hasn´t been long since the announcement of Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, but we already receive information about the first notebooks based on these "gaming" processors.

Liebermann is the first to introduce its three notebook series: Studio, Producer, and Hollywood (15", 16" and 17" displays, respectively) based on Intel´s Extreme processors (up to 3.2GHz).

Still if there are no overheating problems and FreeFlow architecture proves out, the new machines (resembling Apple´s design) will find their buyers, as they surely not lag behind desktops — up to 4GB DDR433 SDRAM, 7200rpm ATA-133 hard disks, optical combos, 128MB ATI Radeon 9600 Pro graphics.

These notebooks have some more features comparing to their "standard" siblings: except for the standard interfaces, they feature optional TV tuners, MP3 players, card readers, Wireless LAN 802.11b/g, RAID, 2 or 4 built-in speakers, subwoofers, and integrated cameras.

However, these monsters are not shipping today (well, they are actually shipped with the standard P4 processors ;). If other notebook makers follow the aforementioned company and Intel doesn´t impede, such systems might really press various desknotes and "mobile workstations".
