Are you aware that the Atom 330 is as fast as a P4 2.4 Northwood, except a bit slower in the FPU math since it doesnt have the "x87" piece.
While a P4 is no good for many TPU members who live gaming, encoding, video etc. it is still more than sufficient for email clients, web surfing and MS Office use. In fact, with todays faster HDDs, SSDs and large RAM footprints, it is a lot snappier than a P4. And it is SILENT and low power consumption.
So 1600x1200, 1920x1200 or 1680x1050 are resolutions that should be expected. I run three Atom 330's at 1600x1200 so I see no reason why the "upgraded" Atom D510 should have a "downgraded" screen ability.
I also have a SONY W11 netbook for work. Email, office, and linking up to a projector for powerpoint presentations. It's a Atom 280N. I really cant believe that the new CPU/chipset combination would prohibit me from doing something that I do today. (Projector is 1600x1200).
Silly silly marketing restriction. It isnt the technology capability, they are worried about cannabalisation of CULV and Celeron systems.
