Defining Mobility

Today I’m locked in a room with nine other mobile tech reviewers. We’re discussing mobile platforms and learning about AMD’s products and strategies.

Right now there’s a slide up on the screen that shows how AMD thinks of different notebook segments. There’s a note that reads:


“Mobility is a  function of screen size, z-height , weight, battery life & wireless.”

Do you think the above statement covers it all and which components of the definition matter most to you?  Thinness is certainly nice, but for me the most important component of mobility is battery life. A dead tablet or notebook is just a fancy paperweight if it’s out of juice.
