"LPIA is quite similar to i386, but targets the
Low-Power Intel Architecture with different compile-time
optimizations. With the low-power focus, will this distribution
extend your battery life? Yes, our results today show that the
power consumption can be cut down by greater than 10%.
"For this testing we used the beta edition of the Ubuntu 9.04
Netbook Remix (shown above) and the beta edition of Ubuntu 9.04 MID
(shown below). All testing was done on a Samsung NC10 netbook with
2GB of RAM and each distribution was installed one at a time to an
OCZ Core Series V2 32GB SSD."
