Manufacturers have already released laptops built on Intel's first 90 nanometre Pentium M chipsets, known as Dothan.
Fujitsu Siemens has unveiled three new laptops using the chips: the ultra-portable Lifebook S7010, the mid-range Lifebook E8010 with a 15in screen and the Celsius H210 mobile workstation.
Pricing details for the new laptops were unavailable at time of going to press, but they will use all three of the new chips launched today, which Intel has named 735, 745 and 755.
The chip giant has claimed that battery life is extended by 15 per cent with the new processors, all of which are equipped with 802.11b and 802.11g for wireless roaming.
Dell has also unveiled three new laptops using the new chips: the Latitude D800, the Dell Precision mobile workstation M60 and the Inspiron 8600.
IBM is offering its T42 'all day laptop' with both new and old chipsets. Big Blue claims a minimum battery life of 5.5 hours rising to 9.5 hours with optional extended batteries. Prices start at £1,350 excluding VAT.
Sony will be using the Intel chipsets in a new Vaio laptop expected before the end of the week.
Hewlett Packard, Acer and NEC are also expected to take the wraps off Dothan-powered models shortly.
