    Not to be confused with the more popular Intel Atom versions which have faster processors.

    Link to the specs (comparison) for those interested :p

    Ok was going to buy, what does that equal in terms of Intel 900?

    Also is this worth it? compared to others as I really want to buy!!

    ok I'm comfused before it had dtom now it says dothan?

    which one is better?

    Apparently the cost price for the 1000H (not HD) is ~$630, the HD version does not have the ATOM processor which allows for a more prolonged battery life

    nto sure if this will make a whole lot of sense to you airpoe but heres a bit of performance benchmarking for the different chips.

    and

    http://www.mydigitallife.info/2008/03/08/intel-atom-initial-benchmarking-data-vs-pentium-and-celeron-m-processors-before-official-release/

    Your short answer is that the atom is optimised to handle multiple processing tasks at the same time and so technically processes things faster.
    In reality the difference probably wouldnt be that noticeable unless your really pushing the capability of the chip in the machine by loading it with lots of processing intensive tasks at the same time. I'd argue that this probably isnt the type of machine your going to be loading to the hilt with processing but I may be way off the mark in that assumption.

    The drive and RAM capacity in this version are good. Much better than the miserable 8 gig that you get in others. To me it makes them a little more functional and brings them to a point where for the price I'd probably consider buying one.

    How do they achieve that khazOr? Purely through a more efficient use of the processor when its actually doing something or have they reduced the power requirement of the chip ?
  • khaz0r2008/09/17 18:31:16
    They have reduced the power consumption of the intel atom chip. The performance of the atom chip slightly outperforms the celeron as well
  • admin2008/09/17 18:33:10
    The guys that design chips must have the most amazing mathematically conceptual minds.

    Bit more reading on the atom on here http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-atom-cpu,1947-2.html
  • khaz0r2008/09/17 18:39:26
    Yeh they are geniuses. I've also heard rumours that ASUS are planning to make a battery that will last a whole day... pure genius!

    My mind boggles about all this computer jargon, great to know we are in good hands here.
