You’ll want a PC with Intel’s new chip for the battery life alone – Computerworld

ntel’s latest chip, its 4th generation Core processor code-named Haswell, will take a 6 hour battery and make it last for 9 hours.

The 4th generation Core may be the first chip from Intel that can extend — in a single generation — PC battery life by 50%.

Intel built energy savings into earlier chips, but Haswell is a redesign of its PC chip and was created from the ground up with low power utilization in mind, said Nathan Brookwood, a chip industry analyst at insight64.

It’s taken five years to produce Haswell, the time it takes to redesign a chip, said Brookwood. “It takes a while, and it has taken a while, but I think they are there,” said Brookwood of the new power economies in Haswell.
