NEC drops hints about release of first 'Yonah' based notebook in 2006

Although no release dates are available yet, these are the first solid plans we've seen and this may be the first notebook in the market of its type. The planned LaVie RX LR900/ED will come touting, along with DDR2 RAM and the Intel 945 chipset, a dual-core 'Yonah' processor, long raved by Intel and long awaited as the successor to Pentium M. Available to run over 4 hours on battery, supporting gigabit ethernet, USB 2.0 and firewire and a 100GB disk standard, the notebook sounds decent for a high end solution, albelt with Intel's GMA 950 video, though the real hot ticket here is Yonah. The only release date given was 2006, meaning we may still be waiting for quite some time, but either way we look forward to what Yonah can deliver.

The pentium M is a great mobile solution, and many people are using it for their desktop PC's because it is so good for overclocking. The Dual core Yonah (which was developed in Israel, Like the Centerino and the Dothan) is supposed to have great Overclocking possiblities as well, and great performance to its low power consumption :)By the way, Dell announces its Yonah based notebooks and its line is quite varied. The launching includes models from M90 to 680D.The models are as following:PWS M90 - Intel Yonah 756 (1.66GHz/2MB L2 cache/667MHz FSB) PWS M90 - Intel Core T1300 (1.66GHz/2MB L2 cache/667MHz FSB) PWS M90 - Intel Core T1400 (1.83GHz/2MB L2 cache/667MHz FSB) PWS M90 - Intel Core T1500 (2.00GHz/2MB L2 cache/667MHz FSB) PWS M90 - Intel Core T1600 (2.16GHz/2MB L2 cache/667MHz FSB)The prices are not known for the moment.Saw it on

I love all the buzz, but I'm dreading to see the price point when these guys actually begin selling. Lets hope Intel is gentle enough to not max my credit cards.

I hope you don't use an AGP or PCI Express videocard since Intel pioneered those technologies. You might also want to stay away from Ethernet, USB and DRAM. Oh and by the way, if your PC uses an x86 processor, you might want to throw it out, that architecture was designed by Intel. [url=]Intel Innovations History[/url]

I wonder what the speeds will be like when the prices become resonable (mid-ranged). This Yonah thing seems to be part of the big technological step with Vista, HD, Blueray, etc...
