HP PC availability and laptop launch impacted by Intel chipset flaw

Posted on Wednesday, February 02 2011 @ 16:09:22 CET by

HP confirmed availability of its Sandy Bridge based PCs will be impacted by the chipset flaw disclosed by Intel and that it will delay a business laptop launch scheduled for next week. The issue is related to a faulty transistor in Intel's 6-series chipsets, which over time may make the SATA 3Gbps ports inoperable. The design flaw is expected to cost Intel $1 billion in missed sales and repair costs.
Hewlett-Packard Co. said that the availability of certain machines will be “impacted” by a chip- design flaw disclosed by Intel Corp. and that it will delay a product presentation scheduled for next week in San Francisco.

“We are postponing the business notebooks briefing on Feb. 10 as the availability of HP products will be impacted” by the flaw outlined by Intel, according to a statement sent to reporters yesterday by Edelman Public Relations Worldwide.
