Hardware, Embedded Systems The Intel Atom platform, on which most netbooks are based, lacks the graphical grunt for things like 3D games and HD video playback, because Intel insisted on paring the Atom processor with an outdated graphical chip by Intel. Several efforts are underway to resolve this issue, and one of them, NVIDIA's Ion, might already be in trouble before it has even arrived.

What ION manufacturers must do now it is begin to sell those little form-factor motherboards like ones they put in ION reference platform (for demonstration). Mini-ITX still too big (from zotac). Otherwise I will steal the reference box and get an gunshot to the head from nVidia while trying to run away with it. ;) )
