Intel ULV may power the ultimate NetBook

Intel looks like it is trying to kill off NetBooks. The chipmaker has unveiled a new processor to enable manufacturers to create low costs thin laptops Companies like Sony and Apple may find it hard to justify the high cost of their ultra notebooks if mainstream laptops are just as light, thin and good looking. Hopefully, some smart manufacturers will use the processor to power NetBooks.

As an owner of an Atom-based NetBook, I’m very pleased with the way the device handles and performance is pretty darn good. But clearly a bit more horsepower will help. So if Intel’s new ultra-low voltage (ULV) processors are used in NetBooks we end up with the ultimate portable computer.
