Default Gizmodo: Intel Unveils World's Thinnest Laptop, Almost Skinny as a RAZR

Lord have mercy, Intel has just created a laptop that's as pretty as a supermodel, and thinner, too. Codenamed the Intel Mobile Metro Notebook, this prototype was designed by Intel along with Ziba Design, and it's a mere .7 inches thick and weighs just 2.25 pounds. It's no dumb blonde, either, packed with Intel's speediest and most efficient components, which will probably be plenty fast by the time this machine is manufactured, maybe even as soon as the end of this year.

well it will be slimmed down so probably just a monitor very low power graphics chip onboard, small speakers so small they're pointless, no fan as you can use the case as a heatsink, a t5xxx processor 1gb of ram and a falsh hdd which means that it doesn't need to have a power source unless being used

That was so beautiful I nearly cried, just kidding.

I love it even if I have to sell elderly family members I will own one!
