The Asus Eee PC 1201n is a netbook that has nVidia ION and a dual core 1.6 GHz intel Atom processor. I am considering buying this as I do a lot of travel and don't play the latest games or anything like that. The only game which is any question that I am concerned about playing is World of Warcraft. Under Windows this is supposed to run very well, but I have heard that WINE is CPU intensive, and the atom is not a powerful processor. Will performance under WINE be comparable to the Windows performance on the Asus Eee PC 1201N (from what I've read the windows performance is very acceptable)?
I may just get a $500 notebook otherwise (I'd rather have the lighter weight though), although World of Warcraft is not my top priority and a lighter portable machine would be very nice. I could also of course just suck it up and use Windows for WoW.
