    Intel UMPC chip enters service as server CPU

    Makes it harder for Intel to fix prices. Groklaw commented at the time:

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | "The Eee PC's success wasn't possible without Intel's support. The chip maker
    | was initially hesitant to embrace Asustek's push into low-cost laptops for
    | fear it would drive down margins for its mobile processors if users opted to
    | buy low-cost laptops instead of more powerful -- and more expensive --
    | models. But Intel eventually decided that the opportunity to expand the size
    | of the overall laptop market outweighed the risks of lower profit margins,
    | and gave its backing to the little laptops."

    | [PJ: I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. All you folks who flamed
    | me for saying Intel was involved with Asus can now send me emails of apology.
    | Chocolate would be nice too. It would show sincerity, don't you think?]

    Cool... I'm too tired to google this very deep... anyone know how the
    compares, performance wise" to the AMD chip mentioned in the article?

    If it performs well enough, it ought to make a nice, lowcost cluster.
