Intel To Unveil World’s Slimmest Laptop
Lord have mercy, Intel has just created a laptop that’s as pretty as a supermodel, and thinner, too. Codenamed the Intel Mobile Metro Notebook, this prototype was designed by Intel along with Ziba Design, and it’s a mere .7 inches thick and weighs just 2.25 pounds. It’s no dumb blonde, either, packed with Intel’s speediest and most efficient components, which will probably be plenty fast by the time this machine is manufactured, maybe even as soon as the end of this year.
This one has it all. The slim, champagne-colored magnesium notebook—which is only a quarter of an inch thicker than a Motorola RAZR cellphone—will include a magnetically attached folder that will be available in different fashion colors. That folder will also be able to charge up the laptop wirelessly, and ladies (at whom this design is clearly aimed) can attach a strap to it and make it look just like a purse. Jeez, what else did they include in this beauty?
Intel’s latest prototype “Intel Mobile Metro Notebook” is as thin as a fashion model at its .7inch thickness and weight of 2.25 pounds. This new ultra-portable laptop is expected to be manufactured with the fastest Intel components and has been designed with the help of Ziba designs.
While this report of its battery life of being 14 hours can be taken a pinch of salt, its connectivity options of Wi-Fi, EV-DO and WiMax and its use of a flash memory HDD will go a long way in making sure this is one laptop that will not fade into the crowd.
It’ll have always-on connectivity, using all Intel chips, of course, to connect via Wi-Fi, EV-DO and WiMax. It’ll also have a flash memory hard drive, with an expected battery life of 14 hours. Check out the glow-in-the-dark, the screen on the outside of that folder, the beautiful gold accents, and the overall thinness of this thing. It’s just astonishing.
This laptop will be available by the end of the year.
