Concept Montevallo and the Ultra Mobile PC

Concept Montevallo and the Ultra Mobile PC

The UMPC designs we saw at IDF were identical to those that we've already seen last year, though we managed to get to play around with working models running on Pentium M's and Intel 915 chipsets. What was interesting though was the two new Concept PCs codenamed Montevallo that was previewed. The thin and light 12-inch model was designed to work in limited space environments like airplanes, but features extensive technologies like WiMAX and two-2.5-inch HDD RAID setups.
