I'm waiting for the cf-30! i am looking forward to a Intel core Duo (or AMDs offering) with a new fully-rugged laptop. I have no idea when or if this will happen. First in the case of Intel, they need to make a low voltage version that wouldn't possibly take much more than 15 watts (for the fully rugged, fanless/ventless designs).
Right now they are at about 30 watts.
I'm still waiting for AMD to get into the mobile arena again.
The new Y5 is only 1.5 GHz. Y4 is 1.6 GHz. I know it's Duo Core but still you know! I was hoping that it would be at least 1.7 GHz Duo Core. Any guess when they are going to upgrade it to at least 1.6 GHz Duo Core? Very very dissapointed
Yeah, it is kind of sad but you have to remember Panasonic uses passive heat cooling that requires no fan...thus one less power grabbing device to reduce run times. Until something else comes along in CPU manufacturing that can give a high throughput and not require active cooling the Panasonics will take the conservative CPU approach...IMHO.
