Intel's Santa Rosa Line is out! Hypersonic PC

If you check out hypersonic's Aviator EQ7, or click the link above, you'll see that the new intel chips are actually out. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they were going to call the santa rosa chips the Pentium core 2 duo extreme, and that's what it is. I'm excited to see it in more laptops.

that's not santa rosa. That's an actual desktop conroe cpu on a Laptop. I believe the hypersonic notebook is a rebranded Clevo d900c. I made a post regarding the d900c a week or so ago because it was first advertised to have a pair of nvidia 8800 go gpu's. This was later changed to SLI 7950 Gtx's. Still, it should be the fastest laptop around.
Of course many of us are speculating a battery life of something in the neighborhood of 40 minutes (equipped with 280 watt power supply?!).

here was the original link:

Santa Rosa is not a chip, rather, it is a chipset. I believe the chip itself is called the Centrino Pro. The core 2 duo extreme is basically this: ,
The same chip you see in some high-end desktops.
Intel has also since dropped the 'Pentium' name with it's current chips.

Intel Centrino platforms have always been a combination of three intel-made components:

Intel CPU
Intel chipset
Intel wireless adapter

Centrino Pro (codenamed Santa Rosa) will be the latest iteration of the Intel Centrino platform.

your right, it seems they're now using the centrino pro as the new logo for santa rosa. the chip itself is just an upgraded merom

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
