..and add a test about power consumption, as there I see a chance for the nvidia-driver to destroy this great result..
And what about sound or silent ...

I love the hardware/linux reviews you create... thank you for that!
When it comes to the new ION platform however, there is one test
I would like to see added to the reviews:
Flash Playback in full screen:
- HD flash: http://www.adobe.com/products/hdvideo/hdgallery/
- Hulu samples
- Youtube samples.
All the number crunching with the various games is all fine in most
cases but it still fails to let us know how the thing will behave
if we try to put it in the living room running boxee!
I don't expect a quantitative review, just a subjective: works well or
a little jerky etc....
Thanks in advance and keep up the great work!
Just built an Ion nettop a little while ago. Most flash is laughably bad, the Atom can barely scale regular flash to 1280x720, forget about HD flash. When there's adequate GPU accelerated Flash for Linux, this'll be better, but not now. Fullscreen Hulu is out too.
