Centrino 2 aims to please with better battery life...
Intel released its latest-generation Centrino platform today — Centrino 2, which is also known by its codename 'Montevina'. There is a big push for high-definition content with the new platform, which Intel says will decode Blu-ray movies better than the Santa Rosa platform (the previous-generation Centrino platform) and also last longer while not plugged in to an outlet. Nearly all notebook vendors were present at the launch today, but Dell and Apple were conspicuously absent.
Acer is releasing its Gemstone-inspired Aspire-series notebooks for mainstream consumers (pictured) as well as TravelMate models for business users. Models with Blu-ray start at around $1400.
