Talking about embedded processors, i remember intel already introduced embedded processor once which was 1.2Ghz Celeron with motherboard supporting DDR Ram. Used to work fine for office work. but the problem with the motherboard was that it did have only one PCI slot, so if anyone want to add some other card then he has no option, although sound, vga and lan was builtin with no serial /parallel ports, and two usb it was too much limited. The same is the case with the motherboard which intel is embedding the atom processor.
