Intel and Ziba Design have designed the Metro mobile notebook which s less than 0.7-inch thick. It weights only 2.2 pound.
The result, code-named Intel mobile Metro notebook, is less than 0.7 inches thick, about one-quarter of an inch thicker than Motorola’s (MOT) iconic cell phone, making it the world’s thinnest notebook. And at 2.25 pounds, it’s also one of the lightest small-sized portable computers. Other features include always-on Internet connectivity via various wireless technologies.
And unlike other computer prototypes, including some from Intel, this one actually may line the shelves of a retailer before long. Intel hasn’t announced an official release date but people familiar with the matter say a PC maker will announce plans to start manufacturing the machine later this year.
