Therefore, the Asus' price premium isn't entirely unjustified.
I think it's a great product. But I, personally, would rather get the Athlon II x2 for performance reasons. It's close though. I see that the features on the ASUS board significantly beats that of the Biostar, but I'm just saying what I'd personally want.

What is so appealing about the Athlon's performance advantage over the E-350?
Surely you wouldn't buy such budget systems for the purpose of encoding or gaming?

What is left, (email browsing, text work, HTPC...etc) the E-350 can do with no issue.

I program..but I don't use Athlon II's. Like I said before, I loooove Brazos and I am anxious for more netbooks to have them.

I prefer Athlon II's because I build budget desktop computers (for customers) and they offer more processing power for the money. These users typically come from single-core computers with XP on them and they've been more than satisfied with Athlon II builds. I see no reason to downgrade(performance) and pay more. These customers aren't going to be using USB 3.0, SATA III, bluray(well maybe).

If I were buying one of the two for myself, I'd definitely go with the e-350...that UEFI + my ssd is just want I need

I don't want to argue. These are two products that I like. I like one more under certain circumstances and I like the other more under other circumstances.

Did you just say MICRO ATX!?
This + Antec Minuet. PERFECT

And looks like you can overclock via base clock on Brazos CPUs, if you couldn't then ASUS wouldn't have included that feature. All the way up from 80Mhz up to 300Mhz - so theoretically up to 6Ghz CPU
What's say though is that the PCI-E slot is at x4, then again most GPUs wouldn't have a problem, the highest-end ones would be bottlenecked by the CPU itself anyway.

It's probably because you get to pay premium for Asus products. But this one's retailed to go $100.

You are also forgetting how fast the 6310 is compared to a 880g, even an 890gx.

And yeah, I know there's a significant difference in power draw. Just talking about bang for buck here. I am waiting to see more E-350 netbooks so I can get one.

If you wanted proof that an athlon II setup would be cheaper,

I saw another review showing brazos itx mobo/AIO's for $130 USD. However, I think the E-350 will be cheaper in most cases but depending on what you want, the athlon II is a better buy when it comes to bang for buck (CPU-wise at least)

I wonder what kind of overclock that 6310 can take, they have to be seriously throttling it due to power constraints.

Do you two suggest I use this for my customers instead of athlon II's? Will there be a noticeable performance decrease in everyday computing?

Two USB 3.0... guess I'm still waiting until USB 3.0 becomes the standard over 2.0. Good to see the SATA is with the times, though.
