Intel will formally introduce its latest notebook platform today, about a month after originally expected.The Centrino 2 platform (formerly codenamed Montevina) comprises a CPU, main-board chipset, and wireless network interface. The CPU is from the new Penryn series, built using Intel's 45nm manufacturing process. The chipset includes GMA X4500 graphics technology and flash-memory caching.

The platform also includes WiFi support and the option to add a WiMax card. Laptops from Lenovo, Acer, Asus, Panasonic, and Toshiba will carry the combination Wi-Fi and WiMax chipsets, according to Intel.
