FUD Zilla writes the average notebook based on Intel's Huron River platform with the Sandy Bridge 32nm processor will be capable of playing two Blu-ray discs on a single battery charge. These systems are expected to ship in 2011.
Intel is now promising that your 2011 notebook might be able to play two Blu-ray discs per charge. At least to us this sounds like an improvement in battery life but we are well aware that some top battery saving Calpella notebooks can probably do the same.
Intel’s rapid storage technology will somehow be able to save some battery life on your notebook and we hope that we can find out more about it before it gets revealed at Intel's IDF this fall, where it is expected that company will get technical about next generation mobile stuff.
