If we've learned nothing else from Bill Gates over the years, we should at least know by now that a computer in the living room is a bad idea. No, I'm not talking about sitting in a sofa with a laptop, catching up on the DVR and hammering out a few emails after dinner.
Since Intel unveiled its Core i7 quad-core mobile processors at IDF a couple weeks ago, several PC companies have announced mainstream and desktop replacement laptops using these Clarksfield chips. Many sites have reviewed the new platform--known as Calpella--in whitebox notebooks, but so far I haven't seen many reviews of real Core i7 laptops, partly because the industry is waiting on Windows 7.

Our much-travelled Technical Editor Rupert Goodwins is currently deep in Intel briefings at IDF in Beijing, but he's managed to dodge the PowerPoint for long enough to send us this pic of a prototype Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC):What's new about this one is (a) it's running Vista, and (b) it's powered by Intel's as-yet-unannounced '2007 Mobile processor'. There are two separate models, one of which is capable of running Vista's fancy Aero graphics — for around 4.

We've just reviewed our second Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC), the R2H from ASUS.
