So, what are the examples of ARM-based systems being better than a comparable x86 system?
Is there an existing ARM system, say a laptop or nettop, that would be on par or better than an x86 system with similar features?
I highlighted the problem word. "Better" is very subjective. And trying to compare ARM to X86 is going to get everybody nowhere fast. An ARM based system has an entirely different focus than an X86 based system. How can you judge better when one system will perform superbly at one thing and poorly at another, whereas the the other system will be the reverse. You would need to state your value criteria to decide which system is more suited to your requirements.

Soon Android phones will be running on Intel. Can't wait to use FASM for that. Very Happy

Ok, let's try the stated criteria - a general use laptop.
Many tablets run on ARM, and are essentially laptops sans keyboard, so it's not too incomparable.

So, put together a laptop with respectable chipset, average GPU, etc, and an ARM cpu at the core.
Are there such laptops, and can it be competitive with the x86 lot?
Sounds like it could be quite a battery efficient system, but what about performance?

You can't compare based upon that. It is far too vague. And iPad cannot run my <windows based proprietary software> which I might consider part of my general usage but others would not. A Dell 18 inch gaming laptop cannot last an entire day without charge poking around random websites and playing minesweeper. Some people value long lasting batteries (so they can use calculator) far higher than ability to run the latest MMPORPG at 1920x1080 60Hz. Everyone has different usage needs so therefore everyone will buy different things to suit that.
