Intel’s Platform Shift

Forbes writes:

[Intel’s] Professional Business Platform will include a microprocessor, a chipset and several other features combined into a single package.

Intel’s approach with the desktop platform is to duplicate what it did with its Centrino platform for notebook PCs, which offered PC manufacturers like Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Gateway a single package comprised of a lot of the basic components needed to build a computer: the microprocessor, chipset and integrated wireless-networking and power consumption control.

One notable feature aimed at corporate IT managers is the ability to manage PCs remotely, even if they’re turned off. Intel says its Active Management Technology will allow technicians to make changes to PCs from remote locations as long they’re plugged into a power outlet and connected to the Internet or to an internal corporate network.
