The next generation of Intel notebook technology is set to arrive on the desk this autumn, with IBM and Packard Bell two of the vendors already vying to get to market first.
The top secret technology - codenamed Tillamook after a US river - is likely to include a 233MHz Pentium mobile chip, very large hard drives and 14-inch TFT (thin film transistor) screens. This will be the basis of a 'fat notebook' or meganotebook for power users.
The player tipped to be first out with the technology is IBM with a Thinkpad but other vendors, including Packard Bell, will not be far behind and are already making noises about their proposed machines.
But the main question most resellers want answered is whether Intel's design for a Pentium II mobile will ever take off with the mass market. One reseller, who declined to be named, said: "The Pentium II still runs hot in a desktop and it's unlikely that Intel is going to sort those problems out in a hurry."
