Intel eyes big biz with Centrino Pro
Centrino + vPro = 'Santa Rosa' with all the options
Intel has formally launched the Centrino Pro brand, designed to promote business-oriented notebooks incorporating the chip giant's corporate-friendly vPro platform technologies.
Centrino Pro combines Intel's upcoming 'Santa Rosa' incarnation of the Centrino laptop platform - due to debut in May by all accounts - and vPro components like remote administration, virtualisation and Trusted Execution Technology, giving it all the wireless spin we've come to associate with Centrino.
In particular, with 802.11n, the as-yet-non-standard next-generation Wi-Fi specification, a key element of Santa Rosa, though one Intel is already making available to laptop manufacturers.
