Default Minilaptop CPU showdown: Atom vs. Neo vs. Nano

While each of the proceeding benchmark tests is affected by more than just the CPU, battery life is especially hard to judge (at least our three example systems all offered six-cell batteries). While we credit Asus' excellent reputation for power management more than the CPU itself, the Intel-Atom-powered Asus 1000HE ran for 381 minutes, the AMD-Neo-powered HP DV2 ran for 149 minutes, and the Via-Nano-powered Samsung NC20 ran for 275 minutes on our video playback battery drain test.

So, what does it all mean in the end? As unsatisfying a conclusion as this may be, there is no clear-cut winner in our match-up of Netbook CPUs, although the Intel Atom is by far the most popular, and each are a big improvement over the older Intel Celeron and Via C7-M chips used in the very first generation of Netbooks. Increased competition is always good for consumers, and having tested and reviewed dozens of Netbooks, you should feel comfortable going for the one that has the mix of design, features, and price you need,
