To bad. Going wireless for everything, especially for sensitive information is NOT a good idea. Way to many ways to monitor transmissions and to intercept, manipulate/hack into. Give me a hardline any day for my sensitive info sharing and business applications.

Perhaps Intel decided to stop making desktop motherboards because they are going to make motherboards on a chip that could work in a desktop or a laptop or a tablet computer.

Jaybus - you have a good point too. Do you know if the UltraBook designs come out of this same motherboard division, or are they designing in a different group?

Dylan, Interesting article but perhaps because I just started reading Aldus Huxley's "Brave New World" my linguistics sensibilities have been really tweaked by Intel's use of words here: "...employees focused on PC motherboards would be redistributed to address..." Things get redistributed. People get REDIRECTED. It's a subtle distinction, I know, but it's creepy that they did that. Maybe telling.

Please do not make this a political rag. Referencing: ~about President Bush letting Osama Bin Laden's family leave the U.S. days after September 11 terrorist attacks—shock.

FYI, a decade or more ago, the mobo biz helped Intel get its latest CPUs and tech initiatives out in the market quickly. Now ODMs are larger and more sophisticated, and Intel has fewer desktop initatives, given the nfocus on mobile. I suspect ultrabooks (a form of notebooks) are fairly non-standard given the kinds of convertables, tablets and other form factors for them are still in an experimental stage. Re chip sets: Now that the memory controller, PCI Express and Graphics are all in the CPU package there ain't much of a chip set business anymore.

"We are ramping up [...] other areas to be discussed later": Will they be building their own devices, e.g. tablets, like MS is doing with Surface ?

I disagree. Note that their reference design for ultrabooks has certainly set a defacto standard in that market. Also, I see little difference in physical size and shape of tablets and phones. In fact, companies are quibbling about rounded corners vs. square corners.
