Intel Conroe to be used for notebooks too

Intel's marketing manager for mobile products at Intel Taiwan says it's possible notebook makers will also use the Conroe processor in their designs for more powerful systems aimed at niche segments such as gaming:
Kao made the remark at the sideline of the ongoing Computex Taipei 2006 IT trade show when asked whether Intel will be opposed to plans by some Taiwan notebook makers to try making notebooks based on the Conroe processor instead of Merom CPUs. Conroe processors are designed for desktops, while Merom CPUs are designed for use in notebooks

Since Conroe and Merom both will come with a similar architecture, it is hard to rule out such a possibility, Kao explained.
