Budget CPU Roundup

For those of you interested, the crew at TechSpot have a budget CPU round-up posted today that pits AMD's Kabini versus Intel's Bay Trail.

Low-end desktop SoCs typically come soldered to motherboards, including AMD's 2011 Brazos platform as well as Intel's Bay Trail-D. Since upgradability is limited in that scenario anyway, many people see tablets and related options as being more practical for their price and portability. AMD hopes to change that with its AM1 platform, which currently offers four APUs as well as a range of affordable motherboards.
