Apple and HP Set to Deliver LED Notebooks

Apple and HP are both poised to introduce notebooks in 2007 that use LED-backlit LCDs, according to new rumors. Taiwanese newspaper DigiTimes reports that the two computer makers are expected to launch these notebooks in the second quarter of the year.

LED-backlit displays have slowly been making their way into consumer electronics lately, with Samsung leading the way with some of their LED HDTVs—the company has also claimed that all of their LCDs will be LED-based by 2008. However, LED-backlit displays have been criticized for their high power consumption (and often higher cost), therefore making them less suitable for portable use.
