The Atoms specifically mentioned so far (until yours) were the D525 and the 330. I'd also add the D510 to that list. Those are dual core while the N450 is only single core. Thus, they will probably get nearly 2x the speed of your N450. The D525 also has a higher clock. Clearly they still won't be as fast as a C2D, let alone a Core i3 or better.
Dual core is not 2x speed unless you're parallel processing -- something that is not typical in audio. IIRC, single-threaded performance of D5xx is very similar to N450.
Personally, I use a D510 (dual core, 1.6ghz, came out prior to the D525) and am pretty happy with it.
...and I'm happy with mine. This isn't about "happy," "adequate," "satisfied," "good performance," "slow," or "fast." It's about giving the OP real info that helps him make informed decisions. I never said "Atom rawks!" or "Atom sucks." That's up to the OP to decide.
