damned good deal. D525 is currently the fastest consumer-Atom and you wouldn't even be using the onboard graphics.
1GB RAM and DDR2 might be the deal breaker though.
If you're buying a D525 system then you aren't looking for super performance. 1GB of RAM is probably sufficient and the only disadvantage with DDR2 is that it's slightly more $ if you want to add more.
The largest use for these systems are HTPC clients and for that this is more than enough power.
Not that it's a deal-breaker, but it might miss many people's observation that this doesn't appear to come with any OS.
Atoms are more than capable for what many people do with a computer these days, and this one comes with an optical drive, so this kind of system is great for people who just want to surf the web, sync their ipods, do their taxes, and work on documents.
