The computing landscape is evolving and changing. While enthusiasts demand the best system with insane CPU power and an ever increasing number of video cards, many mainstream users are moving toward smaller, more streamlined systems. Part of the reason is that mobile computing is gaining more popularity, and a lot of people are shifting away from bulky desktop systems towards more portable laptops, netbook and tablets. Today's small and portable systems are powerful enough to handle basic tasks such as web-browsing, word processing and watching movies, and for some, that is enough. With computer components being integrated, systems are getting smaller, yet the performance is getting better. Both Intel and AMD integrated memory controllers onto the CPU die, and the latest Intel Sandy Bridge comes with native on-die integrated graphics. The need for a large system with various chips is no longer needed--small and integrated is definitely the trend. Intel spearheaded the Atom platform where a very small processor is powerful enough compare to a desktop processor from 3-4 years ago, yet consumes only a fraction of the power. AMD's latest Zacate APU is their answer to the Intel Atom platform.
