Currently ARM, a processor manufacturer makes chips only for phones, PDAs and the like. Currently,  only Intel and VIA chips (the Atom and C7-M) have been used much, with low uptake of AMD’s Geode and the Longsoon.

Recently, AMD have started to move into computing markets with Dell releasing “Blacktop” a blackberry like splashtop interface that specially boots using a low power ARM processor. Next, it seems like ARM may move into the netbook market with low power processors, the Cortex A8 and Cortex A9. I’d be in favour of more competition. It seemed that the launch of the Atom coincided with increaced interest in producing good quality machines that could do more than email.
