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.

Speaking as a person who likes RISC OS and still owns systems that run it; RISC OS is in no sense a plausible choice for a NETBOOK.
It is too possible for an error in a web browsers handling of some data type to crash the whole machine.
