Mobile chip clocks 600 MHz

Three new ultralight portable PCs powered by Intel's 600-MHz mobile Pentium III SpeedStep processor have a battery-saving work mode in which the CPU draws less than 1 watt.

The Versa FXi from NEC Computers Inc. of Sacramento, Calif., the Vaio Z505 from Sony Electronics Inc. of San Jose, Calif., and Toshiba America Information Systems Inc.'s Portege 3480CT weigh about 3 pounds each. Toshiba claims up to nine hours of operation for the Portege, with an optional battery slice.
