Mixed cores like this could be interesting in something like a laptop. Just checking a few email and use the gimped core with the 4 main cores shut down to further extend battery life. Outside of use cases like that not sure how great this would be in other situations.

I can see the perks for most things (in the mobile world), but only one fast core seems limiting.
I agree, but most tasks on a notebook end up using only the turbo for one core, even if there is a higher all core boost. until we know the clock speed of the Atom processors, we won't know whether spill over to them will be a big handicap or not.
