Intel unveils ultrathinnest ultrathin

The 14mm netbook

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Intel has announced on a new "innovation platform" that it claims will enable the world's thinnest netbooks.

Intel claims that its new Canoe Lake platform, a refinement of the on the company's Atom-based Pine Trail platform, will allow for netbooks to be built at an anorexic 14mm thick. By comparison, Dell's ultrathin notebook, the Adamo is 16.5mm thick, and Apple's MacBook Air slopes from 4mm to a relatively tubby 19.5mm thick.

Intel's 'Canoe Lake' ultrathin netbook platform

Closing in on the one-centimeter boundry

The MacBook Air and the Adamo are notebooks powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processors. They're not netbooks per se. Canoe Lake is based on single-core and dual-core Intel "Pineview" Atom processors, which share the platform with the "Tiger Point" I/O chip.

The single-core N400 series Atoms are available now, with the dual-core chips "in production now and on shelves before the winter holiday season," according to Intel.

The Canoe Lake announcement comes, coincidentally, on the same day that Hitachi said it would be making a major push this year towards ultrathin, 2.5-inch single-platter hard drives that will be a mere 7mm thick. ®
