Reasons to consider the
AMD E1 2100

Report a correction
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Newer manufacturing process 28 nms vs 45 nms A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Has vitualization support Yes vs No Somewhat common; Boosts performance of virtual machines
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Higher Maximum Operating Temperature 90 °C vs 85.2 °C More than 5% higher Maximum Operating Temperature

Features Key features of the Atom 230  vs E1 2100 

clock speed

Atom 230
1.6 GHz
E1 2100
1 GHz
I'm sure a fair number of you expected the VIA Nano L2100 to come out ahead because it operates at 1.8GHz, while the Intel Atom 230 runs at just 1.6Ghz, but there is more to it than the 12.5% difference in clock frequency.
