FWIW: All recent Atoms I've seen come with hardware capable of running Movit.
(I regularly run the unit tests on my Atom-based HTPC at home to check that
things work with nVidia, for instance.)

The ARM Chromebooks come with Mali T-604, which do not support desktop
OpenGL, but support GLES 3.0, which has enough features. GLES 3.0 support is
something I am actively working to get into Movit (it is mainly dependent on
a bit of glue code, and my test hardware for it arriving), but I don't know
offhand how this works with Qt.

In general, it's really hard to buy a computer these days without a pretty
advanced GPU. :-)
