Centrino

Intel today released it’s new processor, “centrino”. Because it’s specifically designed for mobile computing, all the major laptop manufacturers also released new products today. It’s an exciting day for the laptop enthusiast. Check out all the new designs from the intel website (in some cases, it’s just a new chip in an old computer).
The new chip features, from what I understand, built in wireless capability. That should come in handy when you’re enjoying your free hour of wireless at McDonalds (with purchase of an extra-value meal). Aside from reading Fast Food Nation, I haven’t studied McDonalds much. I always figured that the bright lights and sterile environment were intended to encourage people to eat and get the hell out. Strange then that Mickey D’s is now encouraging you to stay for an hour, set your laptop in some freedomfry grease, and fatten up while checking your email.
