"Reflecting Transmeta's single-purpose determination to be the
leader in the low-power processor space, an official for the
company said last week that the deployment of the company's Crusoe
processor in ultraportable notebook computers in the Asia-Pacific
region is an indicator of what is to come in the U.S.
"Although Crusoe has only recently begun to appear in
ultrathin portable computers from manufacturers such as Sony,
Hitachi, and Fujitsu, Asia-Pacific customers are responding
enthusiastically to the Crusoe chip, which Transmeta claims
can run complex operating environments such as Microsoft Windows
2000 with as little as 1 watt of power."
