Default Atom Z670 Ready And Willing

"Built using a 45nm manufacturing process, the Z670 runs at 1.5GHz and promises to support 1080p video with the aid of Intel's GMA 600 integrated graphics, while also keeping power consumption to a minimum and allowing for smaller, thinner, and fanless devices."

Intel seems to want to move the ultraportable x86 market at a glacial pace.  The Z670 is an improvement.  Woo hoo!  Look!  It can how handle 1080p video!  If that is the biggest claim it can make, I worry about how incremental we can get.  Next year, a new model Atom will come out that can decode 3D 1080p video.  With AMD's APUs now out in the wild, providing some real competition, the only leverage I can see Intel having is branding and possibly manufacturing capacity.  And that is only if the ARM behemonth does not come up and smack the bottom out from under the market.
