Reasons to consider the
Intel Atom N270

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 45 nm vs 180 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 1.6 GHz vs 1 GHz More than 60% higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
More l2 cache 0.5 MB vs 0.25 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Newer Jun, 2008 vs Mar, 2000 Release date over 8 years later
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
