Nereida Ochoa: Netbooks

Processors

Intel's Atom

Pros, Standard commercial software, including Windows XP and now Windows 7, is often designed to run on x86-based CPUs, Cost-effective yet High Performance, http://www.datarespons.com/templates/interrupt.aspx?id=30531, http://axiomtek.com/ad/atom.htm

Cons, Processor is a bit saggy used with Microsoft Vista, Designed for the smaller size devices, http://www.bestminilaptop.org/dell-inspiron-mini-12-intel-atom-processor-netbook-review.html

ARMS

Pros, ARM has held on tenaciously in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and PDAs, with a market share of over 90 percent., An ARM-based system typically uses as little as 2 watts, whereas a fully optimised Intel Atom solution uses 5 or 6 watts, http://www.datarespons.com/templates/interrupt.aspx?id=30531

Cons, They understand only a handful of different instructions, the minimum necessary to get the job done., Just because ARM can run on the desktop, that doesn’t mean that ARM will run on the desktop: optimizations in the CPU world are always a compromise between performance and power consumption
