Intel to support mini-notebooks with new CPU

Intel announced a new mobile 120MHz Pentium MMX microprocessor aimed at the emerging mini-notebook market this week. The low-power CPU operates at only 2.2 volts internally and consumes only 4.2 watts of power. Intel is pricing the new CPU at only $177.

"Mini-notebooks offer users a unique combination of portability and functionality," said Frank Spindler, director of marketing at Intel's mobile and handheld products group.

Mini-notebooks, such as Toshiba's Libretto, can run Windows 95 but are only slightly larger than the current crop of Windows CE-based handheld computers
