Intel's Pavilion - Notebooks Refreshed

 Intel had a whole Pavilion to themselves (building 33 to be exact) and an entire hall for gaming, but more on that later. We check out some cool highlights in the Pavilion first.

 Speaking of the Atom, Intel had a whole line-up of MID devices from its partners that have yet to hit the market. This is the UMID M1. Comes in 512MB/1GB memory capacities, up to 32GB SSD capacity, a 4.8-inch screen (1024 x 600), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSDPA DVB-H, DAB, T-DMB and optional connectivity such as GPS and DVB-T.

 Here's another MID, the Viliv S5 Ultra PC PMP. Has 4.8-inch screen too (1024 x 600), up to 60B HDD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, DVB-H, DAB, T-DMB and optional are HSDPA module and DVB-T.

 The OQO model 2+ is an expensive MID slated to cost around US$800. Runs on Windows Vista, 2B RAM, up to 120GB HDD or 64GB SSD, a 5-inch screen (800 x 480), Wi-Fi, LAN and WWAN.

 Here's the D4 MID from Sharp. Has a 5-inch screen (1024 x 600), 1GB memory, 40GB HDD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Windows Vista.

 Finally, we have the Lenovo Ideapad U8 which we've chanced upon previously as well. It's specs are almost identical to the BenQ and not much else is known besides that.

 This is a silicon wafer of Atom processors that's powering the MID devices shown here. The Atom is so small that a single 300mm wafer yields about 2500 processors.
