It’s interesting that Acer decided to go with an Atom processor traditionally reserved to netbooks in this new eMachines-branded desktop instead of something typically found in the desktop space like the Atom 230.  The N270 does feature additional power savings over the 230, consuming a mere 2.5W of electricity instead of 4. The EZ1601-01 is definitely an interesting product, and with its DVD drive could easily become an affordable media-centric PC in dorm rooms, kitchens or other auxiliary computing areas.
