Intel will release its next mobile CPU chipset family, the Centrino, on March 12. The chipset has built-in support for 802.11b wireless networking and features Pentium 4-level performance with better battery life and power-management than the current Pentium III-M chips. Lots of PC makers will be on board with new notebook and Tablet PC designs when Centrino hits the market next month. If you’re considering a new notebook, you might want to wait – this looks like a siginificant step forward in notebook computer design.
