Intel to bring vPro tech to laptops with Centrino Pro?

Business-friendly 'Santa Rosa' strand

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

We've seen Centrino and, more recently, Centrino Duo, but will you now please welcome Centrino Pro, said to be the go-to-market brand for upcoming business-oriented laptops incorporating Intel's vPro technologies.

So claim industry sources cited by Chinese-language website HKEPC, at any rate. Intel announced vPro earlier this year, though systems based on the business PC platform only recently began shipping, thanks to the arrival of the Core 2 Duo desktop processor. The shift from desktop systems to notebooks is something Intel can't ignore, and while Centrino might originally have been geared more toward the business buyer than the consumer, it's now a truly market-wide brand.

Enter Centrino Pro, or something like it, to stress certain laptops' greater enterprise-friendliness. Expect to see Active Management Technology 2.5, Virtualisation Technology and possibly Trusted Execution Technology - aka 'LaGrande'. Expect Intel to tout Centrino Pro to companies looking to manage fleets of notebooks better.

The platform appears set to debut alongside or shortly after the arrival of 'Santa Rosa', the next generation of the Centrino Duo platform. ®
