    Although the benchmarks were chosen to suit, the simple fact of it is this Zacate will provide a far nicer accelerated browsing and gaming experience than the i5 + intel graphics ever will.

    Obviously it's going to lose while running very "serious" software, but nobody is doing that at 18 watts anyway. AMD is in a very nice position to make a huge dent in intel's low end with this, and it's 9w little brother Ontario.

    Ontario should be good in netbooks then, my N220 isnt slow for a netbook CPU but waiting for the NF310 to come out for that extra bit of horsepower, AMD might not have been on the ball when Atom launched but unless the next revision of Atom is pretty good these bobcat based chips could be good, and it'd certainly be nice to see AMD ontop of Intel again if only for a while..
