Hardware, Embedded Systems On a number of occasions, Apple has stated that it cannot design a laptop at around 400-500 USD that isn't total crap. This seems like a reasonable point to make - but why, then, is Dell - of all companies - seemingly able to do so? Dell just launched the Dell Vostro V13 (official press release), and it looks pretty good.

Celerons and Pentiums are lower-end versions of the current mainstream (Core 2 Duo, in this case) processor.

A Celeron M 743 will absolutely eviscerate an Atom N280 in performance. (And, Celerons get the same chipsets as Core 2 Duos, Atoms get 2 generations back, so better graphics performance, too.)
