The Intel Atom Processor Z2760 is designed to power lightweight  tablets - approximately 8.5mm thick and weighing 680 grams. Intel said the processor offers long battery life and over three weeks of standby time. It runs Windows 8 Professional and offers a resume time from standby of less than a second. The processor supports Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G LTE mobile networking.

With the launch of Windows 8 on October 25, there will be two versions of the Windows operating system: Windows 8 RT, for low-powered, ARM-based devices, and Windows 8 Professional for full Windows devices running x86 (Intel) compatible software.

The mainstream PC manufacturers are developing x86-based devices such as the Intel Atom and i5 processors, that combine a removable touchscreen, keyboard and docking station.
