The Journal's got an interesting piece (sub) about how Intel changed strategy a year or two back, and refocused on building chips around not speed, but usability. The first fruits of that strategic intent are the M (low power) and Centrino (embedded WiFi).

"...The result: Intel managers now start by assessing what users need in computers and other products. Then, they conceive "platforms" of multiple chips, not just microprocessors, to meet those needs. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, Intel now designs chips for four distinct markets: home computers; desktop and server computers for businesses; mobile gadgets, including laptops and cellular phones; and network-infrastructure devices such as routers and switches".
