Dual-core Atoms: a dish best served small and lightweight
 
Now that the race to cram in the largest number of processing cores on a piece of silicon is close to reaching red-hot temperatures, single-core processors are fast going the way of the dinosaur: after all, most, if not all of AMD's processors are already packing at least 2 processing cores, a practice that Intel has also been adopting save for its Atom lineup.

More specifically, we were referring to the processors that you can find in netbooks today: the low-powered, single-core processor that were designed in order to squeeze out every last bit of battery life at the cost of greatly reduced performance.
