Transmeta is to unveil a range of mobile computers that will use its low-power, PC-compatible Crusoe chip.

The lightweight laptops and Webpads, to be launched next month, are expected to run all day on a single battery charge using the less power-hungry Crusoe.

Backed to the tune of $100m by investors including Linux king Linus Torvalds, billionaire financier George Soros and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, Crusoe can also emulate Intel or other chips using "code-morphing" software that does not affect its performance levels, according to Transmeta.
