If you're not much into hardware, then let me tell you a very simple thing - as lower the voltage needed by a certain chip, the lower its temperature. When overclocking processors, increasing voltage is the last thing to do to ensure the system works properly, but considering the small chips used these days in notebooks, and the fact that most of us have more computing power than needed on the road, we need even lower voltage chips to get things right.

Intel CULV Initiative

According to various sources, Intel's Consumer Ultra Low-Voltage (CULV) initiative will have as leaders two of the largest PC makers,probably Dell and HP, both expected to come up with tiny notebooks with screens between 11 and 13 inches, sometime during this summer.

These sources also claim that Acer and ASUS should be hurt by these new releases, since they have a solid percentage of their income coming from that part of the market. Now, I only ask myself how similar to the ASUS Eee PC will be those new notebooks? The reason is obvious - you want to win a game, you have to play by its rules, and in the UMPC market, ASUS is the main player, as well as the one setting the rules.
