Kelly McNeill writes "In an effort to entice consumers to upgrade or buy new laptop computers, Intel Corp. unveiled a dozen mobile microprocessors on Monday, including some the company claims are the world's fastest and lowest consumers of power. The six Pentium III-M chips and six Celeron chips range in speed from 700 megahertz to 1.2 gigahertz and use as little as one-half watt of electricity. The chips were made using Intel's latest 0.13 micron technology, enabling more transistors to be put on the silicon wafers, which in turn allows longer battery life."
