 Laptop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2820 words) Powerful laptops meant to be mainly used in a fixed location and infrequently carried out due to their weight and size; the latter provides more space for powerful components and a big screen - usually measuring 15 inches or more. While laptops in 1991 were limited to the 80286 processor because of the energy demands of the more powerful 80386, the introduction of the Intel 386SX processor, designed for the specific power needs of laptops, marked the point at which laptop needs were included in CPU design. There is a wide range of laptop specific processors available from Intel (Pentium M –with Centrino technology–, Celeron, Intel Core Duo and Centrino Duo) and from AMD (Athlon, Turion 64, and Sempron).
