First screenshot I've seen, along with a video explanation:-
I've just realised how little I knew about this "instant on" stuff, from both
Asus and Dell.
In the video, they seem to be saying that this is a separate processor, flash
memory, etc. with a specially tailored Linux OS (SLED?).
If so, that already answers several questions I had.
However, they seem to say that this sysyem has full access to the H/W, which
seems a bit odd. If it's spinning up the disk etc., where is this "days
instead of hours" on a charge coming from?
When I saw that Dell were about to do an "instant on", I almost wrote here to
suggest that this facility would provide what users needed for 90% of the
time (and what *that* would do to those User Share figures so beloved of the
Windows Enthusiasts here!). I'm glad I didn't, because I would have been
wrong - the Dell guy says 95%!
If anybody has links to specs, reviews of this or Asus, etc, I'd be obliged:-)
