my understanding is that most software will run under the atom processor. however it depends on the other hardware configuration as to how well it will run. for example, i have seen an asus n10 netbook with 2gb ram & 250 gb hdd wirh a geforce 9300 card in it. it runs everything i've thrown at it so far including office 2007 (although some of it rather slowly!). hope this helps

An Atom Processor N270 has a passmark score of 306.
For comparison:
- Celeron 2.53GHz - passmark 311
- P4 2.26GHz - passmark 288
- P4 2.40GHz - passmark 340
Pentium M 1.40GHz - passmark 270
Pentium M 1.50GHz - passmark 325

It will run anything that runs on any of those.

Simply treat it as any low-end dual core processor.

In a short word, I'd say that atom processor is better than Celeron, so you can run most of the programs that you used to work on, However programs that require too much resources like Graphics, Multimedia editors applications and games will usually work but will cause the CPU to not rest and this might cause a high constant temp which might result to damage it.
