Large Notebooks May Receive Intel Atom

While the Atom right now is currently found inside of both smaller screen and smaller size notebooks and netbooks, it may change in the near future. This is keeping users of larger notebooks from using the processor inside of their own computers. Gadget Mix is reporting however that Hewlett-Packard is attempting to negotiate with Intel to let them use the Atom processor in notebooks that carry a screen larger than thirteen inches. Dell already has its Mini 12 powered by the Atom chip, so it will not come to much surprise if Intel lets HP use it in their larger sized notebook personal computers.
