Intel Keeley Lake Convertible On Its Way
Rather than waiting for Computex to launch, Intel decided to show off a new concept tablet/netbook hybrid. The concept convertible is called Keeley Lake and has a much thinner frame and shaped t and shape, allowing the fold in the design to not appear while closed.
We don’t have the full scoop on this convertible but we do know that it will use an Oak Trail Atom processor. The Atom Z670 will carry 1.5GHz of computing power and allow viewers to enjoy 1080p video. Intel will be running the computer on Windows 7 and providing multiple USB ports, as well as an HDMI out port.
Although this is a concept, you can expect something similar to roll out later this year or at the start of next. If I had to recommend a convertible, I am not so sure I would choose this one over the Eee Pad Transformer.
The reason I say that is because I know the kind of quality Asus puts into their Eee series netbooks and tablets while I hardly see any computers or laptops directly made by Intel. That said, that doesn’t mean Intel can’t rock our socks off with this latest convertible, but I always try to see the proof in the pudding.
