Charbax writes "At Computex in Taipei on 2-6th June, several companies unveiled ARM powered laptops that are cheaper ($99 to $199), last much longer on a regular 3 cell battery (8-15 hours) and that still can add new cool features such as a built-in HDMI 720p or 1080p output, 3D acceleration, connected standby and more. The ARM Linux laptops shown as working prototypes at Computex will run Ubuntu 9.10 (optimized for ARM), Google Android, Xandros OS for ARM or some Red Flag Linux type of OS. Here in this video, the Director of Mobile Computing at ARM is giving us all the latest details on the status for the support of full Flash (with all actionscripts), the optimizations of the web browser (accelerating rendering/scrolling using the GPU/DSP), the stuff that Google is working on to adapt Android 2.0 Donut release for Laptop screens and interfaces and more. At Computex I also filmed an Interview with the Nvidia team working on Tegra laptops, the Qualcomm people working on Snapdragon devices and the Freescale people doing their awesomely thin ARM laptops in cooperation with manufacturers such as Pegatron as well."
