You really want to compare a high end Pentium-M at 2Ghz to the Atom at 1.3Ghz? My point is that the Wal*Mart buyer of 4-5 years ago was buying 1.4Ghz Pentium-M's... so, let's see a comparison with the lower end Pentium M and the Atom N270 (the N270 1.6Ghz being typical for netbooks now).

So... I'll stand by my remark about performance. I currently do not have access to a netbook, but if I get another one, I'll bench it myself against a 1.6Ghz P-M that I have... at least that will be somewhat close.


I can safely say that my old Pentium M (1.4GHz) performs noticeably faster than my Atom N270 (1.6GHz) in my Eee PC 901. I still prefer my 901 though ;)

I have an compaq evo n410c with a 1.2 P-M.
I also have 2 of the original aspire ones.

I have to lock the compaq at 800MHz because of the massive heat this thing generates...it overheats and shuts down while playing hulu. And the fan tends to run irritatingly high.

The atoms on the other hand only just get somewhat warm doing the same things.
