    As long as this is accesible and doesn't make the netbooks to become pricier this is an excelent piece of hardware to add to netbooks!

    nice upgrade to the netbook cpu speed but i think it will also make the prices go up on netbooks which in the long run i dont like :(

    I'm agreeing with the concern on pricing here. If it drives the netbook prices up it might kill the netbook in the kind of economy we have right now. But it might work better for ultraportable laptops.

    Bout time Intel has some competition ,, The biggest problem with Atom is Intel made it and they have to sell it for a discount with there CRAP graphics.

    Is it me, or didn't Nvidia do this already with their Tegra platform?? They have a 720p and an 1080p ARM based system on a chip...
