    Yes, it has been used in laptops (some Gateway models, for instance), but I
    suspect strangely broken configurations of this chip are more common than
    laptops using it, and I don't expect the power saving to be that dramatic.
    Those machines are pretty good for battery life anyway, considering the
    high-end (for the time) configurations. (btw: I no longer have one)
