My brother keeps saying Atom is the next greatest thing for Portables. He says he can't wait to get some kind of advanced PDA or ultra-portable with it. I can see why. One of those at 1.6ghz uses almost no watts. Nice. We can see some serious power on PDA's or iPhone like devices very soon.
The processor does look promising... yet another reason why intel is better than AMD ;)

Hey, quit trolling.
$5 chips, slapped in an Asus EEE is a recipe for massive win.

They are $5ish to manufactor/package but will be selling for around $30 or so ...
500% profit? How much do you think their $1500 CPUs cost to make? Would be $250 if that's their scale for everything, which I doubt.
will be intersting to see how well these do and to see how amd responds

Well intel has giveaways to employees of their re-sellers in which if you take enough intel quizzes they give you an intel mobo, an OS, and a prettty top-o-da-line CPU for under $300. This year they gave a 965 board, Q6700, and Vista Ultimate I believe for $260. (Intel retail edge is what I am referring to).
So in this case either they are loosing millions of dollars or they really are marking stuff up a lot; I am going with the latter
