Why the Intel Core M Broadwell processor is going to be a big deal for laptops

Why the Intel Core M Broadwell processor is going to be a big deal for laptops

Today, Lenovo announced what may be arguably one of the most exciting convertible Ultrabooks around for the next few months.

Although Lenovo gets credit for the design, one of the technology features that let them go so thin was due to Intel and their new Core M 70 Broadwell processor. You may have heard of Broadwell versus the current Haswell generation as something worth waiting for, but you may not know all the differences.
