I haven't been following Intel Atoms all that much. Are these chips already more robust than a P4, other than the obvious of being a whole different arcitecture causing them to run on much less power and much cooler. I'm curious about the comparison of processing power.

From what I've heard, it's really a mixed bag.  In some things, the P4 will destroy an Atom; whereas others the Atom wins (even at a lower clock speed).  Overall, they seem to have similar performance per clock.  So, a 3.0Ghz Pentium 4 will be faster, but it may also be using 130W of power.  :/
