Hardware, Embedded Systems Netbooks use various types of processors, but most of them are built around Intel's Atom processor and architecture. There are more exotic options, such as the Chinese Longsoon processor, but those are quite rare and hard to come by - and certainly not as powerful. Apparently, another contender is preparing to enter the netbook processor market. Say hello to ARM.

Guess what ARM originally stood for? That's right, Acorn RISC Machine. No points for guessing who created the RISC OS...
