Not For Gaming
The Atom processor itself is not powerful enough for most modern games. Remember it's a CPU with the processing power of a lower end mobile CPU from 2004, pair it with Intel's GMA 3150 and you have a mix that just shouldn't be used for gaming. I ran both World of Warcraft and Left for Dead to prove my point:
Gaming performance isn't any better than on the previous Atom, and definitely no where near Ion (nor a standard desktop PC). It's not meant for gaming, so don't bother.
