Looking further into the future, Otellini predicted that platform power innovation will reach levels that are difficult to imagine today. Intel's researchers have created a chip that could allow a computer to power up on a solar cell the size of a postage stamp. Referred to as a "Near Threshold Voltage Core," this Intel architecture research chip pushes the limits of transistor technology to tune power use to extremely low levels.

i love the facted that those lamps are probably using more energy than the system. Fail

Heh, well those lamps are just for demonstration purposes. Advances in solar technology are exciting. I remember reading a while back of more efficient solar panels, so hopefully that comes through. However, if solar power gets big enough, I'm sure the corporations will try to find a way to charge for the Sun.
Even if some other components don’t have improved power consumption, the fact that the CPU will should at least help the situation. The fewer components in a device that demand high power then the more power is available overall. Well, that’s my guess anyway.
