Atom 330 needs an update... it is long in the tooth, requires a higher FSB to match the N280 at least, and a lower power requirement on the chipset, and then we are all happy.

I've got an Atom 330 setup and it is great... only too hot. (chipset).

It's also time Intel released the Atom 440. A quad-core Atom on FSB 200. Perfect for mini-servers and NAS.
