This looks like a pretty kickass low power processor. If it performs as well as it sounds like it should, there is going to be little reason to keep buying "real" x86 machines for your typical Word/web/email/solitaire office users. IMHO, of course...

No word on how it will compare to Intel and AMD processors? I'd love it if VIA caught up/passed Intel and AMD. I can't see it happening this abruptly though.

That's not their goal, as they have specifically stated. They're still going for the low-power, low-performance, cheap market.

nice - good look for via. would be nice if they could realize that 2-4 x performance increase
maybe even a dual core. the c7 is actually already a decent solution with winxp.and no
heavy applications.

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
