They are small, but their nature dictates that they are less powerful and quite a bit more expensive than a similarly equipped desktop.

SiSoft Sandra 2000 Pro CPU/Memory Benchmark

As you can see from the Sandra benchmarks the two CPUs are head to head in terms of Dhrystone and Whetstone scores. But, the surprising memory scores can probably be attribute to the notorious low memory scores that are usually associated with the VIA Apollo 133A chipset. Of course that's not the entire performance picture. Let's look at some Quake III benchmarks.

Quake III demo Benchmark

Obviously, the Sandra benchmarks only show part of the overall picture. You should never get hanged up on synthetic benchmarks alone. The Quake III scores show the superiority of the desktop system, mainly because of the graphics chipset. Even though we ran the Q3 benchmarks in the fastest mode, thus minimizing the effects of the video card, the video still played a very important role in overall performance. It's a shame we couldn't get the Content Creation to work. We would have loved to see Windows 2D performance. I have a feeling the results would have been very similar though.
