Default ULV, who else is in love?

Who loves ULV CPUs? I do!
ULV + 9 cell battery + no wifi = 8 hours of use! 6 with WiFi.

wow....Ultra Low Voltage, right? Are these kind of processors, special or something? Like the G0 stepping? Or will it become more common? I hope so.

Turning off Wifi only saves about 15 minutes on my laptop.
