    As efficient as the Atom N270 is (at 1.3-1.6Ghz the specs say 2W-4W) it is always coupled with the Intel 945GC/945GM northbridge, which has specs topping 25W in use.

    Here is a
    test results thread where the tester says his Atom 230 plus 945 GCLF chipset consumes 44 watts. Not very efficient at all.

    I know the Atom N270 is better but like you say, Neko, the biggest problem is the 945 chipset.

    I had the CherryPal logged onto IRC for about 11 days. It just runs and runs and runs. I think it could do equally well running a webserver or filesharing client though I know those activities would stress it more.

    Intel Atom netbook platform with the 945GSE Express chipset has a specified maximum TDP of 11.8 Watts.

    ASUS Eee PC 901 uses 945GSE (Calistoga) Express chipset.
    ASUS Eee PC 4G Surf (701) uses Intel 910GML (Alviso-GM) chipset and it has 10.5 Watt max TDP.

    The problem here is between the keyboard and the chair.
