Qualcomm's snapdragon is an arm based architecture with just 500mW of active power. x86 based atom from Intel burns close to 2W of active power. No cooling fans needed for Qualcomm smartbook. With such low power you can use the smartbook for up to 8-10hrs of multimedia use without needing a battery charge & weeks of standby time . The next gen snapdragon chip with performance up to 1.5GHz uses dual processor architecture.
