Intel Yonah Launch Date – CoolTechZone is reporting that Intel’s new CPU, code-named Yonah, is set to be launched in less than a month, on January 6th. They believe it will be launched in India, but have this to say about a launch in the US: Knowing that the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2006) will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada around the same timeframe, it makes sense for Intel to do a simultaneous launch in the U.S. as well.

Review: Fujitsu LifeBook P1510 (

Fujitsu P1510D
Yet another review of the Fujitsu LifeBook P1510/P1510D – this time from The P1510 is one of the smallest “convertible” ultraportables, with an 8.9-inch widescreen display, and is powered by Intel’s Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Pentium M CPUs.

ABC News/PC Magazine has published a review by Cisco Cheng, of the Fujitsu LifeBook T4020D, the 12.1-inch convertible laptop/Tablet PC with an optical drive and powered by a Pentium M (1.73GHz or 2.0GHz).
