Intel Santa Rosa lowered April notebook sales

Posted on Saturday, May 19 2007 @ 04:51:28 CEST by

Analysts claim that Intel's new Santa Rosa notebook platform put a damper on the sales of notebooks in April:
The decline was due to users putting off purchases ahead of the launch of new notebook PCs armed with Santa Rosa, according to DRAMeXchange Technology.

These users have been waiting for an opportunity to upgrade their laptop PCs and their OS at the same time, so the arrival of Santa Rosa laptops could boost sales of the new Windows Vista OS, the market researcher said. The new set of chips, launched in early May, increases wireless Internet and processing speeds in notebook PCs when compared to the previous Intel Centrino package.

At the launch, the fourth generation of the Centrino wireless chip package abandoned its Santa Rosa code name in favor of its marketing names, Centrino Duo and Centrino Pro. Both versions come with Intel dual-core microprocessors, but the Centrino Pro is specifically targeted at laptops for business users. It carries Intel vPro software, which helps corporate IT departments manage fleets of laptop PCs.

Intel expects over 230 new laptop and desktop PCs to be built around the Centrino Duo and Centrino Pro this year.
