  1. Intel unveiled its next-generation Atom processors for netbooks and entry-level desktops earlier this week.

    They should be able to do 720p. I got my dad a lenovo netbook with an atom in it several months ago and with VLC I was able to play 720p mkv (h264) files. So that was done without Pine Trail. Probably can't do 1080. It also may struggle with YouTube's hd flash files.
