I'm a little worried about this one.  Although AMD stopped making the
processors at the end of 2008, they were sort of popular for certain
super-cheap, small (for want of a better description) "Mac Mini
clones" that have been selling well in the UK.  Like this one:

(but there are many variations from other manufacturers in the same
form factor).  They're great machines, actually, totally silent and
consuming barely any power.

Here's the /proc/cpuinfo from one:

processor       : 0
vendor_id       : Geode by NSC
cpu family      : 5
model           : 5
model name      : Geode(TM) Integrated Processor by National Semi
stepping        : 2
cpu MHz         : 398.477
cache size      : 32 KB
fdiv_bug        : no
hlt_bug         : no
f00f_bug        : no
coma_bug        : no
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 1
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu de pse tsc msr cx8 pge cmov mmx mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow up
bogomips        : 798.13

Anyhow, don't worry about it too much ...
