One user, maybe occasionally two or three. The Atom performance on the
CheckBoxes is impressive, but pricey, starting at US$1000. Are there
homebrew Atom units> I can see some on AliExpress that are based on
Atom Z3735, and booting to Windows and Android, for home media centre
stuff. A quick googling around says that installing Linux onto Bay
Trail architecutre (the Z3735) might not work.
Also, I'm struggling to find a simple benchmark shootout between ARM and
Atom, even to find if they're in the same ballpark. Not sure why.
