That sleek, slender, sexy laptop you have your eye on could get a new "s" to add to its attributes: silent.

Intel has announced a prototype for a new laptop that is only 7.2 mm thick and requires no fan to keep it cool.

That straining fan sound could be a thing of the past with this design. The new chip used in the laptop, a Broadwell, requires 50 percent less space, and it will generate 60 percent less heat, according to Intel.

Asus' newly introduced Transformer Book T300 Chi ... looks like it will be among the first to use it, offering some tantalizing competition to the Surface Pro 3 for Windows users.

Can't wait for a laptop? Here's what to look for in a PC laptop and a Mac laptop.
