[mythtv-users] New frontend... Atom?

I'm looking for a new frontend system - something quiet, reasonably small, 
with a DVD drive and capable of playing 1080p/1080i H.264 AVC streams 
(e.g. BBC HD).

The Intel Atom processors look interesting, but I've not been able to find 
much in the way of performance specs.  Does anyone know if any of the 
Atoms are remotely capable of playing HD H.264 AVC?

My laptop (Core 2 Duo T5500 with Intel 945 graphics) seems reasonably 
happy playing the BBC HD stream, so I've been using this as a base line 
performance requirement.
