Intel Netbooks use toy CPUs, try something real


I am interested in getting something like a netbook, small and cheap. But all those Intel Atom CPUs are so toyish, they will invite laughs from educated people. In this age of 64 bit computing, the 32 bit Atom CPU is rather primitive. Coupled with low screen resolution, they look like those toy notebooks for kids to learn the alphabet.

Then I found this Gateway LT3114u for just $100 more. It has a 11.6 inch HD screen (1366 x 768 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio), 2GB ram, 250GB HDD, and a 1.2GHZ Athlon 64 CPU, that can run everything for modern computing needs. It has a ATI graphics card capable of playing Doom3. It will run Windows 7 64 bit without any problems.

That's a real computer.

For once, I must disagree with Sharikou. I do not think Intel Netbook users should "try something real". Anyone who is stupid enough to use an Intel Atom CPU is obviously too ignorant to be using a real computer. Maybe it is best that they stick to learning their ABCs on their little toys.

You do know a VooDoo 2 is capable of playing Doom3 right? do a search if you weren't aware.
