Re: Good deal at $99, otherwise...
Actually, Intel's Atom is essentially a BayTrail Celeron - lower power, but actually slower than (say) the higher frequency Ivy Bridge Celerons.
But we'll call it Atom-class if you insist, and it won't change my point. Anyone running high-end CAD applications on an Atom processor will not be productive.
And no, with 30 years experience in corporate IT, I don't need your permission to offer my professional opinion on a blog! ;-)
