So, it’s fairly easy — if you have some patience and general technical know-how– to build your own desktop computer. Laptops, on the other hand, are not so easy.
But Antec, the well-known provider of consumer computer components, is launching a new line of standard components for the mobile computing market compatible with Intel’s Rich Creek 2 and CBB standards, that enable–for the first time–system builders to build customized, personalized laptops from individual components.
Earlier this year, Intel announced two new mobile motherboards designed and validated to support Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 processor technology. These boards are based on the Rich Creek 2 (RC2) mobile motherboard form factor, expanding the earlier Common Building Block program.
Antec’s new line comprises two laptop chassis, a docking station, CBB and RC2-specific keyboards, ac adapters, battery packs, and peripherals such as integral webcams and Bluetooth(R) modules.
