I wish Nvidia or Ati make Geforce / Radeon motherboard for this Atom. Geforce 8400 powered ATOM PC with very low power requrement? Sound nice :).

Now, don't chipsets for atom support max 1GB RAM? I bet Linux can be a very good media center PC platform too. And some hardware acceleration by the graphics card like liemfukliang above mentioned, and a price drop, and there you go, the ultimate media center device for general purpose media and general purpose internet too. Install a deep freeze or something similar for the internet connected versions and live happily. Install Vista and whatever you feel like afterwards, and don't live happily.

Hmm, I don't think Vista could run "easily" on a so small CPU. And since the goal is to keep the price as low as possible, I'm pretty sure that XP Media center is a better option there. But i'm thinking that a used PC (like a P4 or something similar) make a good media center for low price, as many people are trying to sell them for dual core options these times.. lol

But for the one who prefer brand new stuff, I think this is a good option, and is probably more energy efficient.
