While you may be correct as far as this particular machine goes, don't
reject all Atoms out of hand. I frequently play 1080i and 720p content
on my D330-based (dual-core) machines without problem--and that includes
MPEG-4 transcoded video, where the CPU has to do the decoding. The load
averages are not even all that awful.
