And unlike other computer prototypes, including some from Intel, this one actually may line the shelves of a retailer before long. Intel hasn't announced an official release date but people familiar with the matter say a PC maker will announce plans to start manufacturing the machine later this year.

If manufactured and sold on a wide scale, the creation could have a lasting impact on computer design, use, and marketing.
