The 4th generation Intel core processors have focused on improving on a great CPU and added a few new features. The important thing about laptops is your portability. That is why you buy a laptop over a desktop. One of the problems with this portability is you are more vulnerable to the laptop being lost or stolen. Intel has developed a new feature called Intel Anti Theft®, where you can track your lost or stolen laptop through the processor . What you can do is either track the location of the stolen laptop or just simply shut it down remotely. This feature does however require a monthly or yearly service subscription. With the new 4th generation your battery life has an expectancy of about 9 hours (depending on use). The processor runs on a lot less power creating much less heat and thus reducing the strain on the entire system. They have also increased the speeds at which these processing power houses can perform. Making them able to multitask smoother and increasing over all performance. They have also improved the graphics performance on the 4th gen processors. Making the graphics on systems with these new upgrades superb. These processors are already on the market and (in a few months) will be all over shelves in most stores. What ever the need Intel has you covered.
