I've never even considered an Atom product before, but the new Intel Atom Z6xx series is a different animal altogether.
It promises both power and power savings. And it doesn't even support Windows (initially), but only Android.

"... The new CPUs offer strong improvements in endurance, even when using a battery with the same capacity as a standard BlackBerry battery. According to Intel, Atom Z6xx chips achieve:

* 2 days (48 hours) of continuous audio playback.
* 5 hours of continuous video playback...."
