    I think it is time to punish Intel for its Anti Competitive behaviour. If they have actually bothered to include even a G45 i dont think as many people will complain.

    Didn't read that this morning! But

    First I've heard of this. I'll dig around in Taiwan to check, but it'll be next week now.

    EDIT: Oooh, right, I've just worked it out.

    I think they might sell singularly but it basically makes significant economic sense to buy it as a package. I don't know the numbers - I'm trying to find them out.

    That is my assumption but I'm trying to find out all the numbers before I write another news piece. It would make the most sense.

    I'm sure via will be happy to work with Nvidia, and I'd much prefer Nvidia Ion coupled with Via Nano cpu

    Why would an Ion be good with an Atom can someone explain? I personally cant see a point for the kind of platforms Atom is based on, but I might be misinformed.

    I still don't understand why nVidia ditched VIA. They should have at least waited till Intel let them use atom...

    You think that they would be happy to sell the Atom to whoever wants it in todays financial climate.A sale is a sale,cash in the bank!

    wel it kinda makes some sense as the whole netbook and nettops are more aimed at like business and similar not really anything visually intensive as that would just lower battery lfe even further but at the same time you would think that having options like that would allow the people to grasp the atom even further. My guess is Intel doesnt want to do this as they want options for when they launch their graphics card stuff so they can put it towards all these different things and so forth but ehh I could be wrong.

    I think that Intel is growing to be too arrogant. Maybe they should remember a moral from IBM's history - in IT world even the greatest, most expensive company can very quickly be reduced to insignificant ashes. Monopoly is not good for anyone, and I wish intel everything bad.

    They are trying to create a super stable 'MID' platform, not your average PC internals.. atleast thats what I thought atom was for!

    yay, full HD capable netbooks with oh wait, err small screens. dang!

    just kidding, as an ITX board, everyone will be happy as the atom can be used as a true HTPC device, i know il snatch one up! Even if it cost £50 more than current Atom ITX boards, which are ~£50.

    Intel made a mistake. Bullying people around might have worked in 1988 but in 2008 that's going to hurt them badly.
