Well that new ARM processor would be good, except for the fact that it wont stand up to the Atom 330. Even then, its not a matter of technical capability, its familiarity. People are going to buy what they know. If Harry Homeowner can't find Internet Explorer on his new Ubuntu netbook, chances are, to him, it doesn't have internet.
