Texas Instruments develops wallet-size notebook adapter

Wanna know something about laptops? No matter how small and portable you make ’em, the AC adapter’s always going to be the size of a ham sandwich. Well that gravy train is about to crash into a brick wall of ingenuity thanks to Texas Instruments. The company has apparently developed a 90-watt AC adapter that measures 85x60x11 millimeters or, as the above photo shows, about the size of a wallet.

The adapter is being shown off at a trade show in Japan and TI has already started shipping the adapters to Chinese manufacturers (no release date for Japan yet). It’ll sure be nice to see these tiny things start to make their way into netbook and ultraportable notebook kits.
