    Atom N470 offers more of the same, with a slightly improved core frequency.

    and first review I read say they couldnt tell any difference in responsiveness.

    At Atom's performance level they should have skipped this and gone straight to a 2Ghz (or more) speed.

    Something has to take a long time for people to notice a ~10% difference... how many of us would really notice that something took 4.5 rather than 5 seconds... or 0.9 instead of 1... chop 20-30% and it's more obvious.

    It's the same for any processor series, a 10% speed bump is hard to notice outside of benchmarks or very long winded tasks such as a media encode. In those tasks, if anything Atom's slow speed should make the boost more obvious rather than less so as the 10% = more real time.
