    The Yoga is the closest you'll get to a Chromebook tablet.
  • James Martin 5/6/2014 5:33:21 PM
  • Eric Franklin 5/6/2014 5:33:57 PM
    I like laptops with touch and it's great on a Yoga-type system, but otherwise I forget it's even there.
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:34:05 PM
    AH. Thanks for the correction, Ian Ray. Not a black Macbook, but a Chromebook with an Apple sticker over the Dell logo.
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:34:17 PM
    one more thing!
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:34:47 PM
    Intel intends to ship its first "conflict-free" chip this year
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:35:01 PM
    tin, tantalum, gold, tungsten
  • James Martin 5/6/2014 5:35:17 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:35:28 PM
    the mines where these metals are dug up are often in "rough areas of the world"
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:36:05 PM
    Intel is making an effort to raise awareness of where the precious metals come from
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:36:26 PM
    video: "i'm an intel engineer, but more importantly i'm a human being"
  • James Martin 5/6/2014 5:37:32 PM
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:37:34 PM
    Intel's video is good PR, but it doesn't say where or how the conflict-free chips are mined. A good move, but too light on details.
  • Eric Franklin 5/6/2014 5:37:52 PM
    Intel saying it will no longer get its minerals from mines controlled by warlords is a great sentiment. I'm just curious how they'll actually pull this off and in what volume these "conflict-free" processors will be produced.
  • seth.rosenblatt 5/6/2014 5:37:56 PM
    All the devices shown off today will be powered by conflict-free Bay Trail and Haswell chips
  • James Martin 5/6/2014 5:38:27 PM
