From my general impression most ARM's are aimed at embeded/mobile devices along the lines of mobile phones and network equipment, where as intel are pushing it's XScales into PDA's and may see some luck in light tablets.
Though I sometimes dream of massively parrellel systems based on cheaper ARM's, but that's more a dream than reality.
ARM processors to power cute netbooks As so many of you have pointed out, a number of little notebook computers, which are all the rage these days, are to be powered by ARM chips, paving the way for a possible RISC OS port to such slimline devices (especially given the recent Ubuntu Linux on ARM announcement) - however there are countless ARM Linux-powered systems available already and yet there's no sign of any RISC OS port for them either...
