Actually, maybe I am stupid and ill-informed. There were a couple that had CPU/ABI option as "Atom(x86)". However, it has now been about 4 minutes on my 8 core i7 machine with 6GB of RAM, running nothing but ADT, the emulator, and this web browser and Android is yet to finish booting inside the emulator even running the "Atom(x86)".
With VirtualBox + x86 Android images, even from cold boot it takes maybe 40 seconds and if I resume from a paused VM it takes seconds. Now at minute 6 and the ADT emulator still hasn't finished loading. Conclusion, VitrualBox+x86 Android images is infinitely better.
