Intel Talks "Canoe Lake" Platform and "Oak Trail" CPUs
Intel has bemoaned the fact that netbooks were not as profitable for it or computer makers for a while now. Despite the fact that the company would rather sell more expensive Core-based CPUs for full notebooks, the netbook market has boomed and Intel has offered a steady stream of new hardware to support the category.
Today at Computex in Taiwan, Intel announced its plans for the Atom processor line and showed off a seriously thin concept netbook dubbed the Canoe Lake innovation platform. Canoe Lake is only 14mm thick making it the world's thinnest netbook. Intel also highlighted the new Pine Trail Atom dual-core and Oak Trail CPUs that are optimized for netbooks and tablets.
