Oh... and one more thing. I saw NO issue with web video playback peformance and no problems using the GMA 950 with DVD resolution (480p) video. Again, that was using a N270 on a near 1st generation Aspire One A110 netbook (considered to be a lower end nb with the N270).

With that said, I have friends that say the netbooks with the broadcom wireless do give them issues.

Better comparison, but again, not with the N270, uses the Z530, but still (N270 will do a bit better than the Z530):

They're results seem to indicate the Z530 fits between an 800Mhz and 1.2Ghz P-M. Since the N270 is slightly better than the Z530 on performance, I still feel pretty comfortable with the 1.4Ghz P-M compare. Regardless, just the fact that it gets close is enough IMHO.
