I think the ATOM is good considering its wattage range but your absolutely right the mobo chipset kills any advantage the Atom would have at this being a good low powered beater system but I hear Intel will have a decent mobo chipset soon.

Supposedly the VIA nano is faster but VIA wont have a dual core and the Via prices don't come close.

Then there is AMD they are going to have what is it 15watt and 22 watt chips soon? I think they will even have a 45watt quad phenom. But the AMD mobo chipset is what makes this really shine. Still have to wait and see but I think AMD will deliver this time.

This all comes down to the design and if AMD can deliver on those 15-22watt talk for most of us this will be a no brainier.

I am looking forward to more PC that look like Wii's but pack a good punch especially with the possibility of external video card for high performance.

The wii is relaly incredible too. Like a 1w draw for the 750Mhz PPC Based processor. The whole thing draws like 20 watts, total. Incredible.
