Plus Zotac have zbox machines with an AMD brazos processor for around $250, so from a price standpoint this makes no sense to me unless you really want the Atom...

I've got one (a Zotac AD04 with an AMD E-450 + 8 GB of RAM) and it works decently with most normal games, although it lacks CPU power.
Piledriver should solve that pretty well, but it seems that that's not around the corner, or at least not the ultra-portable versions of it.
