Which one is better??

I'm in the market for one of those small "netbooks" and was wondering what you guys think of the new processors for them, mainly:

Intels Atom
VIAs Nano
Nvidias Tegra

I've been reading about them and was wondering which one you'd rather have if you were after a netbook.

Time for the blind taste test?

In reply to: Which one is better??

Ignore which CPU is in said laptops and get the benchmarks for WHAT YOU USE IT FOR as well as the battery time (in said benchnmarks) and then ask "How much?"

Don't fall victim to picking a laptop because of its CPU.

True good point, the reason I asked which one was best was down to battery life, I'll just be using the laptop for internet, writing, and email. And possibly watching a film here or there.
