[endgadget] Lenovo ThinkPad X120e review - Page 5

post #41 of 50
Microcoded instructions are the norm for CISC machines though. Most of them get translated to sets of RISC instructions anyway, so there isn't really much difference.

And considering that Fusion does 64bit, SSE4 and virtualization, on top of what the Atom does, the fact that 1% of the instructions are microcoded is very minor.

We don't even know how many of the instructions on the Atom are microcoded anyway. (at least everywhere I looked it was under NDA)

It surely beats using some tablet in my opinion at least.
Whats wrong with atoms? My asus p1001 gets 8 hours battery at full brightness and on high performance with Asus turbo at Max Performance (software overclock). Not bad, flies through everything I use a netbook for (youtube, google, word processing, powerpoint, music etc.). A 2gb stick of cas-5 ram is the only upgrade I've made too. SSD is the next upgrade... That'll make this thing even better in every way.

Love the Atom n450 platform, but the future is as the future does. I fully support the idea of better chipset, but to say the atom line was trash is a joke. I love mine.

Yes.... A 1.8GHz Atom performs about the same as a 1.2Ghz Pentium 4. With no hardware off-loading, it is bad....
Once again...

I'm an owner of a MSI Wind U100 (Atom 270 w/ Intel IGP) and it struggles to play flash videos at all, let alone fullscreen. I would imagine the dual core Atoms fare better, but not by much without a 'real' GPU. So, yes, it really is that bad.

These are actually awesome school laptops. They fit easily in bags and backpacks, not too heavy, good battery life, and enough power to run pretty much any application with reasonable haste. And cheap

I am not pleased about the delay on the x120e. Does anyone know if it's a worldwide release on March 8th or US only then it will slowly permeate into other markets (namely Canada)...
