Some second-tier Taiwanese notebook makers will roll out models using Intel desktop-use Prescott processors before the chip giant launches notebook-use Mobile Prescott processors in the second quarter of this year. Aimed at the desktop replacement market, the desktop Prescott notebooks will weigh around 3-3.5 kilograms, have a thickness of about 40mm and consume around 103 watts of power. Using desktop Prescott processors will give them cost advantages over using Mobile Prescott processors. Desktop Prescott processors at 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2GHz with 800Mhz FSB will be priced at US$ 178, US$ 218 and US$ 278, respectively compared to Mobile Prescott processors 3.06, 3.2 and 3.46GHz with a 533MHz FSB at US$ 234, US$ 294 and US$ 433, respectively.
