Does anyone know if this will be a thing? My laptop's battery has become almost non-existent and I do not feel like shelling out $170 for a battery; I would rather pay a bit more to get a new laptop/netbook. Seeing as how some netbooks are pretty nice, it would be really amazing if they started using sandy bridge.
There are some ultra low power dual core Sandy Bridge CPUs in the pipeline. Just don't expect to see them in 'Netbooks. That's mostly based on price and performance. You will see them in CULV ultra portable notebooks.
