If the rumours at DigiTimes are true, the P45 models will be the last time you see Universal abit motherboards. This does raise the question of what abit will be selling if they do discontinue their motherboard line.

You knew it would happen sooner or later. Having a half dozen universal remotes, each with 50 plus buttons just isn't enough to control a real multi-media system anymore.

It will mean lighter laptops, with longer battery life and may even increase the speed at which the new Centrinos will operate.
