Intel "Santa Rosa" launch guidance
Tax refunds and "Merom" notebooks

Earlier this month, Intel released design guidance for its upcoming Santa Rosa platform.  Santa Rosa is the Centrino G965-derivative platform for mobile devices. Intel's upcoming Merom processor will headline the platform on Intel's Socket P.

The design guide (right) claims the launch for Santa Rosa will fall somewhere around late April, with the thermal design guide getting a 1.0 revision right around late March.  In the past these timeline forecasts have been more accurate than the corporate roadmaps, so we're keeping our fingers crossed.

Anyone knows what piece of hardware Matanzas is? Intel's website doesn't reveal anything to me about it, and neither does a quick Google search.

It's a reference design platform. I'll write up about it later today.

That seals it for me. I'd been debating whether to hold off on getting a new notebook, but given that my work roles include a lot of switching back and forth and use of multiple wireless NICs, Santa Rosa wasn't going to do a lot for me anyway. So when Merom becomes available, so will my purchase request.
