Phoronix: NVIDIA ION Linux Performance
Earlier this year NVIDIA introduced the ION, which is their new system platform that pairs a GeForce 9400M GPU with an Intel Atom processor to make it an appealing platform for those desiring a netbook or nettop computer but are interested in a higher level of graphics performance than what is currently possible with Intel's integrated graphics. Products using the NVIDIA ION have been slow to emerge, but in recent weeks, we have begun seeing more devices around, including those from smaller manufacturers. One company that is now selling an ION-powered nettop is ZaReason, which is a Linux-focused hardware company. In this article we have a whole arsenal of Linux-based tests showing off the NVIDIA graphics performance with the Intel Atom processor under Linux.

Thanks for the review Michael. Is that netbook already up for sale? I don't see it in zareason.com
Ah, thanks, Michael. And yes, I got confused, because I read somewhere else that they were considering an ION netbook. Thanks for clarifying that!
not bad. It would certainly be something I would look at. Although I would need at least 12 inches of screen so netbook is out of the question...
