    Just did a search tonight for the Asus E35M1-I, and the first real result I came up with was from Newegg:

    E35M1-I: $174.99

    Ouch... well they may be trying to compete with Atom, but they're almost 100% higher on the price point. I realize that this is likely supposed to compete with say, the Ion boards... but unless they come out with an $80 board I don't see this becoming nearly as mainstream as Atom has.

    $109.99 is a step closer, but still $30 more than the base model Atom, and since the base model Atom board does everything I personally need (and is perfect for quite a few applications) I don't see the reason to spend the extra money.

    That being said, I'd be interested to see a complete benchmark comparison between the Ion boards and the Zacate.

    For those who hate on the AMD CPU's...

    I use an AMD X3 400e. Couldnt ask for a better, low power CPU (45W). Was a little hard to find, but its a great chip. My carPC boots directly to interface in less than 10 seconds. A lot of that is due to my SSD and tweaked system, but I have had zero issues with my setup. It's fast and robust. I can't say much about these CPU's, but I have an X4 965, an X2 775, and X3 400e and they run flawlessly.

    There is a Fusion developers conference coming up in June. If you want to learn about accelerated openCL programming, or beat on me, I'll be speaking.

    I was so nearly going to upgrade my car computer last year with an atom board....the shock and horror of it. I hate Intel as the R&D and manufacturing plants are in Israel. Without trying to start a flamewar, I appreciate some people ghave different views and that's fine.

    So when I heard about AMD's fusion APU, I was immensely pleased and waited. Lets just say, yes the AMD boards are more expensive than the Atoms but bear in mind that these have just been released, the prices will drop a little later, not to mention that the AMD Fusion has WAAAAY more raw processing power, graphics horsepower, sound quality..... it trumps the Atom on absolutely everything.

    Desktop wise, yes the Intel's offerings are faster however even on my gaming rig, my Quad core 9550+ isn't ever being utilized to it's maximum. Even in processor dependant tasks, a few seconds won't hurt......

    I'll be going for the Asus AMD Fusion board as it has a better audio processor

    Also I can't wait for the netbooks/laptops featuring AMD's fusion to come out......12+ hours on battery life

    Here's A Nice One

    I found this AMD Hudson Board at newegg. It is still a bit more expensive than most Atom boards but I think it would be worth it.
