You really want to compare a high end Pentium-M at 2Ghz to the Atom at 1.3Ghz? My point is that the Wal*Mart buyer of 4-5 years ago was buying 1.4Ghz Pentium-M's... so, let's see a comparison with the lower end Pentium M and the Atom N270 (the N270 1.6Ghz being typical for netbooks now).

So... I'll stand by my remark about performance. I currently do not have access to a netbook, but if I get another one, I'll bench it myself against a 1.6Ghz P-M that I have... at least that will be somewhat close.

I can safely say that my old Pentium M (1.4GHz) performs noticeably faster than my Atom N270 (1.6GHz) in my Eee PC 901. I still prefer my 901 though ;)
