Penryn-Based Notebooks to be Released
By Robert | January 9, 2008
The new Penryn notebooks have been leaked and Notebook Italia is responsible for posting some insider specs. Intel’s 45 nm Penryn based server and desktop based processors were released a few months ago and on January 6 we can expect the new Intel Penryn-based notebook processor to surface. The good news for us tech geeks is that we do not have to wait until the official January’s Consumer Electronics Show for details issued by Intel as notebook manufacturers already started leaking various details on upcoming Penryn-based notebooks.
First on the list is Acer, which will launch 8 new such notebooks in January. They will range from a 12.1 inch Aspire 2920 (coming with a Core 2 Duo T8300 processor and 320 GB HDD) to the much more impressive 20.1 inch Aspire 9920G (coming with NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT GPU, a Core 2 Duo T8100 processor and 500 GB of storage space). You might also opt in for various other Acer notebooks that come in various screen sizes. Fujitsu will also launch two new Penryn-based notebooks, the Amilo Pi 2550 and the Amilo Xi 2428. The second one comes with a better processor and both have 2 GB of DDR2 memory and a 15.4 inch WXGA screen. Sony also comes strong to the table with 5 new VAIO models that range from the 13.3 inch VAIO SZ71XN/C to the 17.1 inch VAIO AR61ZU. There are also various specs when it comes to hardware but the fact is that this is just the first wave of Penryn linked announcements and we do expect a lot to appear including Dell, Asus and HP/Compaq. The leak was expected and now we do have it although we can expect something special to have been left out. This means that we must also watch the official statements made at CEO in January.
