Multitude Of Innovations Boost New Intel-Based Laptops

Intel Corporation announced a host of new technologies, including faster Intel Core 2 Duo processors, for its latest-generation Intel Centrino processor technology used in notebook PCs for consumers and businesses.

More than 230 Intel Centrino Duo and Intel Centrino Pro processor technology-based designs from PC manufacturers, resellers and integrators around the world are expected to take advantage of these and other features this year. Notebooks will come in a plethora of shapes and sizes, with designs ranging from fully loaded, 17-inch wide-screen entertainment models to tiny, energy-saving notebook PCs that weigh less than three pounds.

At the heart of the new Intel Centrino Duo and Intel Centrino Pro processor technology-based notebooks is the next-generation of Intel's Core 2 Duo processor. Additional power management features will continue to enable users to have the improved battery life.

In addition, the Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset family with Intel Clear Video Technology enables an enhanced high-definition video experience. Users can also share their content with family and friends via TV easier than before with Intel TV Wizard, which is a simplified way to connect to HD-enabled TVs. A new suite of drivers delivers better support for Windows Vista Premium and Windows Aero.

In order to download or upload digital content faster from the Internet, the available Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N provides 802.11AGN WLAN capability and allows users more freedom to do more, delivering up to five times the performance for such tasks as downloads and twice the wireless access range.

Intel Turbo Memory is an optional feature, unique to Intel technology, that can access frequently used software applications twice as fast and reduce the amount of time it takes to turn on, or boot-up, a laptop by as much as 20 percent. In turn, these faster speeds save on power consumption and increase battery life.

With a new brand specifically for business users, Intel Centrino Pro processor technology will adopt features found in desktop business PCs today with Intel vPro processor technology. IT departments will be able to reliably manage both desktops and notebooks and deal with what plagues them most security threats, cost of ownership, resource allocation, and asset management and do so wirelessly.

One of the key innovations designed in Intel Centrino Pro Intel Active Management Technology provides business-class notebook PCs with wireless PC management, protection and remote repair work thereby increasing productivity, IT savings and uptime.

Intel will also use this new mobile technology foundation for a variety of smaller, quieter and high-performing consumer desktop PC designs with optional 802.11n wireless support and Intel Turbo Memory.

Intel expects hundreds of notebook models in a range of prices to be widely available now. Additionally, a range of consumer desktop PC designs based on the Intel Core 2 Duo processor and Intel Viiv processor technology are also available now. See the complete price list here.
