HP considering netbooks with ARM processors

Posted on Friday, May 29 2009 @ 22:53:17 CEST by


HP told Bloomberg that they're looking into ARM processors for netbooks:
Chips based on ARM’s technology would be suitable for machines called netbooks or mini-notebooks, said Todd Bradley, who oversees the PC unit at Palo Alto, California-based Hewlett- Packard. Devices such as Sony Corp.’s PlayStation Portable, Apple Inc.’s iPhone and some models of the BlackBerry already use ARM chips.

“We look at ARM quite a bit,” Bradley said today in an interview in New York. “The mini category is one that plays closely to ARM.”

Hewlett-Packard’s PCs mostly use chips from Intel, whose processors power about 80 percent of the world’s computers. Intel extended that dominance last year with Atom, a chip designed for netbooks. Because netbooks are intended for simpler applications -- such as surfing the Web -- they don’t need as much processing power as more pricey computers. That could allow companies such as ARM and Qualcomm Inc. to challenge Intel.
