These laptops have some limit.It is not a replacement for a desktop so don't store huge amount of data on it or use it for photoshopping or editing videos.
Use these as a thin and light way to browse websites, write notes and send emails on the move.
For bloggers atom based laptops are great, I'm greatly impressed with their light weight and cheap price.
