At this point we’re pretty certain Phantom’s shady, vaporous history is warning enough to anyone thinking about giving cash to the company, but the risk-takers out there might want to take note: Phantom’s oft-delayed Lapboard is now available for purchase.

    The picture says it all, Intel’s going crazy small with its latest SSD chips, but it’s certainly not leaving capacity behind.

Intel should be showing the chips off at CES in January, no word on when we’ll see ’em hit the market.
