I don't think so, perhaps non-cycle exact A500 mode works, maybe. Which Atom model? Which HP Mini model? Old Atoms are quite slow.

I do know Windows 8.1/10 tablets are fast enough even for cycle exact A500 but they also have later generation and much improved Atom CPU.

Bay Trail Atom CPUs seem to be at least 2x faster in single core benchmarks vs Atom CPU used in HP Mini 210. 4 times cache size, about 4 times more memory bandwidth (Both are very important in emulation).

I'd say HP Mini is too slow.

The linx Vision looks interesting.
Its using the new cherry trail. Which is faster again. Its aimed at xbox one streaming. It can take 64gb sd to, which is nice. Wonder if you can jam a 128gb in there.
Well its on my Christmas list, .

I run WinUAE fine on an Asus eeePC 900HA, which is 1.6Ghz Atom, I would recommend getting this one as a tiny WinUAE machine. Every other netbook of similar spec I tried (HP Mini, Toshiba NB205) all for some reason don't perform as well as the eeePC even if they shared the same processor type clocked at the same speed.

If you need a little more juice, you can overclock it to 1.8Ghz safely.

Do not bother with those ancient Atoms. (including eeePC). Atom CPU generation is much more important than clock rate. They have improved greatly in last 3 or so years. They can have same clock rate but over 2x speed increase without increased battery usage.

In my opinion only Bay Trail or newer generation is acceptable for emulation purposes.

EDIT: eeePC also seems to have Bay Trail models available = always check the exact CPU type!

I got an intel mobo with the 1.8 ghz Atom. Runs WinUAE OK but can stuggle syncing gfx & sound sometimes.....so a 1ghz Atom might realy struggle on some games/demos?

I have a Linx 8 tablet - it's fast enough to do A600 2MB just fine but starts dropping frames for my usual config (A1200 blizzard 1230 mkiv +32mb and hdd).
