Yeah but that 900mhz proc makes you want to carry a knife while you use it so you can stab yourself!

ah youngens....

I remember when overclocking my celeron 300a to 450 was the "in" thing...

Used to be able to get away with 100x of what we landed on the moon with, now its a neccessity that you have enough horsepower to map the galaxy.

Gotta love it! :cool:

Remember the Atom is an In Order processor and not an Out of Order processor like the Celeron M (in this above example.) Because of this the 900mhz celeron is almost the same speed as the 1.6 ghz Atom, and in some areas the celeron is actually faster.

QFT. If 900mhz isn't enough, you are running the wrong OS/window manager :)

most of my vm's don't get this much cpu time :)

We also used to ride horses to span large distances but you dont see that anymore do you? Could we still do it? Yes. But why?

On a related note, that machine could play a mean game of "Oregon Trail".

The advantage of the Atom is supposedly better battery life. I used both and couldn't really tell a big difference.

The mwave deal above is definitely hot. That shift key is a killer though. It makes it almost impossible to touch type.

I was VERY close to picking up a netbook, till I went to BB to try typing on them for a few minutes. Glad I did. If you have large hands, it's a pain in the ass to type on the smaller keyboards. Try one before diving on any deal.

If you can manage, go for it!
