The Inq writes Intel is shooting for a battery life of 5 hours with their upcoming Santa Rosa mobile platform.
A thin and light Santa Rosa machine produced by OEMs using Intel specs would have a 15-inch screen, two hard drives, and with battery life in excess of five hours.

It would use Crestline GM chipsets using ICH8M, and support "Kedron" 802.11.n/a.b.g wireless LAN, EM64T and "Nineveh" LAN. Typical Merom chips might be the T5000 or T7000 microprocessors. Such T7000 processors will clock at 2.33GHz, 2.16GHz, 2GHz and 1.83GHz, with 667MHz system buses and 4MB of cache, apart from the 1.83GHz model. Intel will also roll out Celeron M chips using Merom cores.
