In the News Well, you can classify this under the double-you-tee-eff header. There is rampant speculation in London's financial district that Apple may be planning to buy ARM, the processor design company many of us have a soft spot for. Shares of ARM went upwards quickly when the speculation started, making it the biggest winner of London's FTSE.

The problem with your statement is I have a Toshiba NB205, and it has a 280 Atom CPU (that dual cpu to those who do not know) and I am getting about 10 hours life out of the batteries today in Windows 7 and about 8-9 hours of life in Haiku. The SSD I installed may help explain the run times, but I clearly do not need to move to ARM to use this machine all day.

Intel is not made of fools, expect the Atom series plus support chips to get better in the future.
