If you're contemplating the purchase of a new laptop, you might want to hold out a bit longer if this report from Digitimes is correct. It seems that Intel, who already dominates the laptop arena, is planning on adding new features that will both enhance performance as well as increase battery life.
The Robson technology the article mentions is a flash memory socket or slot that will allow OSes such as Vista to improve hard disk performance and save electricity in the same way that hybrid drives work. This technology sounded really good a year ago, but recently there have been numerous hybrid and solid state disk (SSD) drive announcements from many key players in the storage arena, so the benefits may only be seen with the now "older" mechanical drives.
