Ultra-low Voltage Laptops Draw Interest



Intel displayed laptops powered by the CULV (consumer ultra-low voltage) chips from a half dozen PC makers on the same day it announced the Pentium SU2700, a new addition to the chip line.

The Intel microprocessors are meant for a new class of ultra-thin laptops that are as light as a netbook but pack bigger screens and stronger computing power. Examples include Gigabyte's new CULV and Windows 7-powered Booktop M1305, pictured. Such machines could fill the gap for buyers between standard laptops, which usually cost over US$1,000, and netbooks that sell for as little as $250 but do not run complex applications well. Full details.
