why would intel only have allowed 1gb of ram with the atom? that just seems silly. even the original eee supported 2gb...

The 945 chipset maxes out at 2GB is what I have read time and time again.  I have never heard of anything that said that it was 1GB maximum in the Atom based PCs.

* EDIT *

The chipset in the Atom PCs is the Mobile Intel 945GSE which supports 2GB maximum RAM.  1GB is the highest any manufacturer is currently selling it with though.

Don't know, maybe just because many people don't know how easy it is to upgrade the RAM in a PC.

Asus N10 is atom powered with the option for 2gb!

Dual core Atoms coming around the corner!!

Remember, this form factor is still very juvenile, and companies are still learning very much in from this new market sector.

I'm SOOOO glad i have waited for a new pc.  Christmas time will be funtime!

On a side note... Ive seen a huuuge drop in SSD pricing...  GOOD TIMES COMING!
