Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

Don't you find them too slow? I've got an AMD Fusion E-450 system and it feels really slow to me, and it's faster than the Atoms and VIA processors you linked to.
