And so it has happened. The new mobile platform from Intel, the successor to the just cause of the first Centrino generation has been officially announced. Thanks to the Moscow representative office of Acer, we had an opportunity to lay our hands on the new platform, so we run some express tests on Sonoma-based TravelMate 8100 notebook. If you are interested in technical details, I recommend to take a look at the test results obtained in RightMark Memory Analyzer (link). In this article I’ll try to show you what the notebook based on Intel Sonoma is like. Unfortunately I had little precious time to examine the notebook completely, that’s why some aspects will not get the coverage they deserve. But later on, we shall certainly review the new Intel product in more detail.
