Intel Now Releasing Macbook Air Processor for other Notebooks

 At the Intel Developer Forum Yesterday, Intel announced new, very small Centrino Processors for Notebook computers. The processors are a result of the reasearch and development done for the Macbook Air.  Per Arstechnica,   "Centrino processors will be used in both Lenovo’s X301 and HP’s 2530p."  "Both the SL9400 (1.8GHz) and the SL9300 (1.6GHz) use a 1066MHz FSB and carry 6MB of L2 cache. Intel is also introducing a pair of 10W processors: the SU9400 (1.4GHz) and SU9300 (1.2GHz).
