Default Newest Atom processors in tablets/hybrids vs processor in older laptop

Hello,

My laptop is starting to decline, and I'm looking to replace it. I'm especially interested in the tablet hybrids, but it seems that some people beef with the processing power of these on account of the Atom processor.

I don't need much computing power, and am wondering how the newest iterations of the Atoms compare to a processor that would be in a 3 or 4 year old laptop, specifically a 1.3 ghz Intel U4100. Would the Atom still be limited compared to something like this?

Also, any opinions on touchscreen ultrabook vs tablet hybrid would be appreciated.

Thanks for reading!

Might want to check with Intel and VIA as they are the two major players in the nano sized processors.
