This prototype handheld on display at the fall 2005 Intel Developer Forum is a full-fledged computer containing a notebook chip called Yonah coming next year. It has not been announced who will make these PCs.
Some manufacturers have already released mini portable PCs, but sales have been limited. This prototype at IDF measures about 4 inches by 6 inches. Toward the end of the decade, Intel plans to come out with a new line of chips designed particularly for these types of devices.
This PC doesn't contain fans to cut down noise and is intended for the living room, where it would store video, audio and other files. PCs based on this design will start hitting shelves later this year, Intel CEO Paul Otellini said.
This is what Intel's latest prototype entertainment PC looks like under the hood.
"With 2 billion screens out there, you can start thinking of delivery of content to 1 billion people simultaneously," Otellini said.

Samples of Conroe, a dual-core processor for midlevel to high-end PCs coming in the second half of 2006. Conroe will be made on the 65-nanometer platform and sport an architecture that is more similar to today's notebook chips than current Pentium 4 desktop processors.
This notebook chip comes out in the first part of 2006. It is the first dual-core chip from Intel with a shared cache and will appear in notebooks based on the Napa design.
