Intel Funds Ultra-Thin Laptops

Intel 1

bonch (38532) writes "Intel has set aside $300 million to fund ultra-thin laptops it calls 'Ultrabooks'. The Ultrabook will be less than 21 millimeters thick and will wake from sleep in less than seven seconds. Acknowledging the influence of the iPad and MacBook Air, Intel said Apple had told them that they needed to lower power-consumption or lose them as a customer, calling it 'a wake-up call.' Nigel Dessau, chief marketing officer of AMD, said his company is skeptical of ultra-thin laptops but will work with customers on low-power solutions. 'We are all going that way.'"

21mm thick and wakes from sleep in less than 7 seconds?

My 3.5-year-old, 17" MacBook Pro pretty much beats those specifications.
