[citation][nom]geekapproved[/nom]GM has some of the highest rated cars on the market right now, soooo.....[/citation]

sorry to LOL, but what "market" is that ?
If you travel overseas you'd be surprised on how many GM cars you will see on the roads; virtually none.

If their cars where so highly rated by consumers they would not have been in need of a multi-billion bail out deal.

[citation][nom]southernshark[/nom]They need to drop the whole Atom name and start from scratch. Atom has a reputation on par with a GM model car.[/citation]

Whatever name you slap on it, it will still suck. Heck we could call it FX, and it would suck...

The CPU core is still the same as the one that launched in 2008.

@ geekapproved

- Actually you're incorrect. GM is a big player in Asia (specifically China) as well as Australia (GM Holden, Inc.) Also their Chevy Cruze, Caddy CTS-V, and GMC Terrain are all commercial successes in the United States.

I don't see why they wouldn't redesign the Atom chip from the ground up. Atoms are inferior to other laptop chips because anything with flash brings them to their knees. And what many people use their netbooks for? Flash video, flash games, flash everything. Inflating the clock speed of the atom to 2 ghz did not solve this problem, and neither will adding 2 more cores. The AMD laptop APUs are vastly superior to the Atoms.

Would there by any way to mix some political affiliations into the totally irrelevant pro/con GM comments here? You know, to spice it up? (re: idiots)

i personally believe that the politians had much to benefit from the bail outs of the car manufacturers(ie stocks) and that is the only reason for the buyouts. i mean come on why else would they do it.

Shows how little you know. In China BUICK is considered a luxury brand and highly sought after. But feel free to keep talking about things you know NOTHING about. Europeans in general don't like American cars because a: their roads aren't generally made for them, b: unlike the tards here they believe in supporting THEIR economy.

They are redesigning the ATOM, but not from the ground up. They are already extremely efficient CPUs that will no doubt get improvements across the board. Intel has promised such improvements for 2103 and beyond. I don't know why TOMs followers even comment on them since those followers are only interested in gaming rigs. These are processors made for small form factor notebooks, tablets, multimedia devices, and phones. They will serve their purpose in that arena. Everyone else can buy an Ivy Bridge or a Haswell come 2013.

I think there is also a difference in pricing-- a Ford focus starts at £13,995 in the UK and $16,500 in the US.

£13,995 is currently $21,674, so maybe paying a 30% premium to get a US made car scares some people away?

Reversing it-- an S550 in the US starts at $94,500... in the UK £60,605. That is $93,859, so essentially the same.

Here in the US we can buy a Ford or a Mercedes and the prices are pretty relative. If overseas they have to choose between market rate for European cars and paying an extra third for an American car, which one do you think they'll pick?

Next question, why do you think there is an extra 30% there?
