Computer giant IBM has shelved plans to include Transmeta's Crusoe microprocessor in its ThinkPad 240 notebooks, according to reports Wednesday.
Despite demonstrating a Transmeta powered ThinkPad at the US PC Expo in June, the reports suggest IBM has no immediate plans to include the chip in its notebooks.
IBM's decision has come at a precarious time for Transmeta: the company will issue its initial public offering (IPO) on 6 November, according to company underwriter Morgan Stanley Dean Witter.
Its technology has also been criticised of late with the suggestion that its power saving benefits come with a significant performance hit.
