AMD Brazos Platform and AMD E-350 (Zacate) CPU Review
The last paragraph is to the point. The Brazos platform is too late to benefit from the netbook fad. But a Brazos Mini-ITX board would be a good basis for a small and cheap sytem for the many users who only use browsers and e-mail.
It's the best netbook cpu, if it had been released in 2009 when netbooks were all the rage it would have done really well. The current rage however is android/iOS tablets and this isn't suitable for them.
Basicly the new ARM CPU-s are also waiting now for the shrinks, so the next one could be finaly at time and more tablet friendly.
you need to double the results of intel ...

Also because actual cost for electricity is based PSU + Computer your measurement seem too scientific, good enough to judge certain motherboard electrical design, but do not reflect what my electric bill will be. Also you could your review ASUS MB
Some review sites show power draw highier, but I doubt it since their measurement techniques are flawed to begin with.
