Yeah, I know, anybody could build an ARM-based netbook, so that’s a pretty weak headline. But while HP hasn’t committed to anything yet, HP exec Todd Bradley tells Bloomberg that the company is “looking” at the ARM processor family “quite a bit.”
Does that mean that HP is going to give up on Intel Atom powered mini-laptops? I wouldn’t bet on it. But the company could decide to complement its line of netbooks with low power, ARM-based computers running Linux. HP has already shown that it’s not afraid of Linux or of computers that don’t have Intel processors.
