Atoms are largely a huge waste of silicon.The only ones worth anything were the dual cores with hyper threading.
Netbooks just suffered as a result. Terrible CPU performance, stingy RAM, slow 8GB SSDs, terrible 4200RPM HDDs, crappy 1024x600 screens that were too small to display menus and the options properly. Just a totally frustrating user experience.
I gave my linux Acer Aspire One away a few months ago as I was going to throw it in the trash but a customer took it off my hands for nothing. I wouldn't have had the nerve to ask for money for that.
Get a Chromebook, a far more useful experience.
