WinBook W Series To Use New Pentium-M CPU

This under-$2,000 WinBook W series model will be the first WinBook to use Intel’s new 90 nanometer Pentium-M chip architecture (code-named Dothan). WinBook will offer this W series model exclusively with Intel Centrino Mobile Technology, which also includes Intel Wireless Pro 2200 802.11b/g wireless and Intel 855PME chipset.

“Intel Centrino Mobile Technology with the new 90nm Intel Pentium-M processors combines the exceptional battery life associated with Centrino with an even higher level of performance,” said Dan Burns, WinBook president. “The new 90nm Intel Pentium-M processors feature 2MB of L2 cache – double that found in 130nm Pentium-M processors. Doubling the L2 cache and increasing processor speeds on the new 90 nm Intel Pentium-M processors results in exceptionally fast mobile performance,” said Burns. “Intel Wireless Pro 2200 802.11b/g wireless gives the best wireless performance ever offered by WinBook,” noted Burns.

A New Generation of Widescreen WinBooks Featuring ATI Graphics

A brilliantly crisp15.4-inch WXGA+ (1280 x 800) screen will be standard on the WinBook W series with 90nm Intel Pentium-M processor, replacing the 15.2-inch screen offered on the first generation WinBook W series. WinBook has combined this with more graphics punch than ever before with ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 with an impressive 64 MB of video RAM. “The new WinBook W series with 90nm Intel Pentium-M processor will offer better quality digital media performance for gaming and DVD viewing,” said Burns.

Incredibly Sleek and Thin

The new WinBook W series with 90nm Intel Pentium-M processor will be incredibly sleek and thin. Its stylish magnesium-alloy case will measure just 0.98-inches thick in front, and will have overall dimensions of 1.3-inches x 9.8-inches x 13.8-inches. Compared to many 15.4-inch widescreen notebooks, the WinBook W series with 90nm Intel Pentium-M processor will be lighter at just 6.4 pounds.
