With a nearly 2ghz chip in a laptop thats so thin it can fit in an envelope...I really am curious if the airbook gets too HOT to handle. Comments Reply 1 of 4 berlepsch Posts: 30member January 18, 2008 12:32PM I saw numbers of 17 W for the 1.6 and 1.8 GHz ultra low voltage processors (core 2 duo SL9300/9400, 45 nm structures). That's half the power consumption of the currently used 2.2 and 2.4 GHz models.

The package is smaller. The processor is what gets hot. The package does not. The thing that will mean less heat though is the lower power consumption.
