"Newcomer Transmeta is taking on Intel in the battle for
mobile users who want continuous Net access with no strings
"The upstart chip company on Tuesday unveiled a series of
prototype notebooks using its Crusoe chip that promises to last
longer and run cooler than any Intel chip currently
"Transmeta has its closest ties with IBM, which provided a
Thinkpad 240 notebook with a motherboard supporting Transmeta
rather than the normal Intel processor. IBM said it is
manufacturing all Crusoe notebook chips at its Burlington, Vermont,
"Leo Suarez, director of worldwide marketing for mobile
computers at IBM said the company deviated from its policy of not
disclosing details about future products because they wanted to
"validate that a (Thinkpad) running standard applications can run
on a battery for between six and eight hours."
