Default What to expect from laptops next year

Here are some pretty interesting updates from Intel. Intel will introduce their latest mobile platform, code named Santa Rosa which may come out in the first half of 2007. One of the improved additions is a technology called Robson, which packs a large cache of flash memory onto the motherboard to shorten boot and resume times, and help save power.

Wireless networking gets a boost, too, since the new platform will include the all new draft 802.11n networking protocol. Some improvements in speed are also on tap, including a faster bus (800 MHz versus 667 MHz), updated mobile Core 2 Duo CPUs with enhanced power saving technology, and new integrated graphics ready to handle all the 3D accelerated visual effects in the Aero interface for Windows Vista.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
