• Looks like an ARM-based Windows laptop is coming

    I always take “reveals” like this with several shipping containers of salt, but putting Windows on Snapdragon/ARM chips (as opposed to Intel/AMD chips) is potentially a Real Big Deal.

    Two overriding questions, of course: Can Snapdragon provide enough oomph to work in your particular situation, and is it really compatible?

    Anyway, Habeeb Onawole at Gizmochina has an interesting sneak peek.

    For the ARM notebooks, Microsoft and Qualcomm have signed up with multiple partners. One of them is HP and details of a Snapdragon 835 notebook has been seen on its CarePack Database.

    Tip o’ the hat to MSpoweruser.
