Well, the pine trail is only 945gse integrated on one chip with atom. And everyone who had opportunity to use machines with this chipset knows how shitty they are. So i should really look somwhere else especialy Ion based and AMD Yukon and Yukon2 based systems...

Could be complete BS, ever hear of an NDA? I'd have to agree with mafinphoenix, as of 27August2009, Intel has never had a graphics product that was actually exciting, throwing their crap IGP into the CPU packaging instead of the northbridge is not exciting. AMD IGPs in a Yukon system, on the other hand, might actually make a computer product that doesn't need to have excuses made for it's performance.

There are two positives with PineTrail (HD playback not one of them).
1. The battery life should be a hell of a lot better.
2. Since it is a single chip, the form factor could be smaller.

If you're looking for raw performance, ION is the way to go.
