An N230 is fine for a frontend-only machine. All video formats except
the more basic mpeg-4 variants (xvid, divx) are accelerated by VDPAU,
so the CPU doesn't have much to do. (In my experience, SD divx plays
back fine. HD divx not so much so. I don't know if decoding is
multithreaded, so I can't comment as to whether the dual core 330
version would be better at it)
