Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Toshiba and Panasonic have admitted there is a problem with notebooks fitted with mobile Pentium IIs and Celerons, and have recalled some stock. Earlier today, Intel UK confirmed it had slashed prices on some of the very same parts. According to information on the Intel Japanese site, the problem is connected with boot failures and packaging problems. There is information on Intel's Japanese site about the local difficulty, but several other sites have commented on the problem. If you go here, you will see Toshiba's statement. Panasonic also has a statement on the problem, which you can find here. But trusty PC Watch, which you can find here, has the definitive statement on the ongoing debacle. ® Intel EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) people were unable to comment on any difficulties at press time, until the problem was checked out. ®
