Intel Centrino Mobile Technology and Wi-Fi

Intel Centrino mobile technology is a platform incorporating Intel s technologies designed specifically for mobile computing with integrated wireless LAN capability. It is intended to enhance mobile performance and extend battery life when incorporated in notebook computers. But the main thing is that a Centrino laptop combines a central processing unit (CPU) and chipset designed for mobile computing with wireless LAN functionality using the Wi-Fi standards. (You ll find more information about Wi-Fi in Chapter 8, “Entering a World Without Wires,” and Appendix A, “Wireless Standards.”)

Unlike many other computers that can be used with wireless networks, Centrino computers provide an integrated Intel Wi-Fi product, called Intel PRO/Wireless Network Connection. This Wi-Fi network connection works together with the other Centrino components to provide freedom and flexibility so that you can work and play at home or on the road without hunting for a phone jack or a network cable. Best of all, there s no need to plug in a special card because it s all built in.
