    Not true about being the same processors in PDA and some phones. The processors in the netbooks are Intel Atom Processors. They are the newest processors for UMD, MID, netbooks, nettop applications thatare low powered using 1-2.5W and performance scaling range from 800MHz-1.86GHz and are also known as codename Silverthorne. The processors used in many of the cellphones and PDAs are usually ARM processors. If you want to know more about each one, I would suggest researching the processors that are in the device you are considering to purchase. Also make sure if you are going to get a netbook, get a 6-cell battery version instead of the 3-cell for longer play time.
