Another useless product from Intel... Instead of focusing on increasing Atom's performance and reduce cpu powerconsumption for notebooks....

I think a mobile nehalem (Core i7) would be the better choice to introduce the Quad core CPU for laptops, maby even during the move to 32nm to keep power consumption low.

... i think that's only useful [if/or ever] when used with SSD's... because the slowest part in tha laptop iz tha HDD... so it would be interesting to see, that some manufacturers makes a laptop with quad and 5400 RPM HDD... :D

Atom is not meant for what you just stated. UMPC and lower = Atom. This is clearly enthusiast market.

Not all laptop users care about battery life - some use them more as a portable desktop. Quad cores combined with virtualization makes for a great mobile development workstation (which has the added advantage of writing off the premium cost as a work expense).
