HP Wants to Put Intel Atom Processors in Bigger Notebooks
      #32264 - 12/31/08 03:54 PM

As many notebook makers seeing success in netbook sales, HP is reportedly negotiating with Intel to put Atom series processors which is mainly designed for 10-inch netbooks in mini PCs with larger screen sizes. Currently Intel poses restrictions which limit the use of processors only in netbook PCs with up to 10.2-inch displays. Here is more info based on the report from Digitimes, a Taiwain based company:

In light of competition from Asustek Computer and Acer in promoting netbook PCs, HP's 2009 roadmap shows that the company hopes to enhance its netbook lineup by offering an 11.6-inch model in the second quarter of 2009 and an 13.3-inch model in June 2009, the sources pointed out.

Negotiations between HP and Intel are expected to reach a conclusion at the end of January 2009, the sources noted. With its brand image and high volumes, HP stands a chance of obtaining consent from Intel, the sources analyzed.
