Unfortunately the Atom proc is paired with a power hungry
chipset. Systems based on that board are still going to burn 40w or
more. The Tomshardware article linked earlier found that an AMD x2
2000+ with 790G chipset had better performance and consumed a few less
This shows that when looking for a low power sytem it is important to
do your research. Many low power systems aren't that low power.
