Leading PC chipmaker Intel announced this week that its third generation Atom mobile processor, formerly code-named “Cedar Trail” is now available, and that systems using the platform will be available in early 2012.

Though Intel is concentrating on “ultrabooks” (i.e. thin and light notebooks with at least a 10″ screen) as the latest growth platform for PCs, the company is not letting netbooks disappear just yet; and these Atom chips are smaller and less power consumptive.
